The traditional bass style of the 4003S - with dot inlays and no binding - was prized by Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they got their first 4001S models in 1964. Players cherish its traditional look and rounded edges that many claim make it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S version comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch make it a dream. Iconic curves of maple form the body with a traditional Rosewood fingerboard. Dot inlays and no binding make this stand out from the standard 4003.

Once you hit this level of an American made bass, everybody makes a 'world's best' bass. A lot of people have resisted Rics as being expensive. Fender, and Musicman have had significant prices raises, and now 2k+ is what you expect for a pro bass. Like MM, and Fender, this bass is as iconic as they come. I'm guessing most buyers have wanted one all their lives. They play exactly as expected, and sound like a Ric. If it's YOUR sound, then it is the best bass in the world. They simply are 'all that', and will continue turning heads for another 50 years. I own, or have owned Fender, Spector, Alembic, Musicman, G&L, Warwick, and other world-class basses. A Rickenbacker 4003 is as good as any of them, and does it's thing very well indeed.
