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.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreAbbotsford, British Columbia
Had a 1973 Rickenbacker 4001 25+ years ago. Sold it regretted it alot. I had been looking around for a new Bass the prestigious bass I had wasn't cutting it for me so I thought I'd go for the Rickenbacker 4003s. Simple Straight forward and Classic. When I recieved my Bass I noticed the Case was a Step up from other Bass Cases I have had in the Past. The Bass itself was what I remembered the Neck was Sleek the Body Curvaceous and Small . The Maple construction is Solid you could feel the Bass Sustain without being plugged in. The Finish was Great. The setup was good outta the Case needed a bit of a tweak but it was very simple to achieve my preferred Action. I'm very pleased with my Investment. I highly recommend this Instrument it's Beautiful and very unique.
