Rickenbacker's curvaceous, no-nonsense 4000 Series bass gets the W Series treatment for the 4003SW. Adding a walnut body and a maple fingerboard to the already beloved 4003S, the 4003SW still comes complete with a set of classic single-coil pickups like its maple-bodied counterpart. Just like the standard model, the 4003SW still offers the traditional simplistic appointments the 4003S is known for. If you're a bass player who wants a straight-forward bass with incredible tone and signature Rickenbacker style & playability, the 4003SW will be the perfect fit!

An Outstanding Take on an Already-Awesome Rick
For some extra tonal warmth and beautiful natural looks, the body of the 4003SW is crafted from walnut and paired with a through-body maple neck featuring a maple fretboard. Bassists who appreciate the organic beauty of tonewoods will be incredibly pleased with the 4003SW, and players who love playing the 4003S but need a bit more warmth will really fall in love with this bass.

Dual Single-Coil Pickups
A set of dual single-coil pickups allow this 4003SW to produce those world-renowned bass tones Rickenbacker basses are famous for. These pickups also provide plenty of sustain and a nice top-end punch.

Simplistically Traditional
With no binding and simple dot fingerboard inlays, the 4003SW appointments don't take anything away from the natural beauty of the walnut body.
