Rickenbacker introduced its 4000 series basses in 1957 and the incredible sound, balance, and sustain of these basses have made them the choice for rock players for over fifty years, including John Entwistle of the Who, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, and many others. This Rickenbacker 4003 bass offers all of the timeless tone and traditional styling of a classic RIC solidbody bass. Blending visually and sonically striking tonewoods with the classic Rickenbacker 4003 bass, the distinctive body of the 4003W is carved from walnut and paired with a through-body maple neck to deliver that famed RIC sustain, potent low-end, and punchy, articulate trebles. With an ultra-comfortable 33.25" scale length and a maple fingerboard, the Rickenbacker 4003W holds true to its enduring reputation of superb playability. Catering to the unmistakable Rickenbacker vibe, the body and neck of the 4003W are adorned with white binding while the fingerboard boasts elegant deluxe triangular inlays.

With a unique vintage voice that you'd only expect from a Rickenbacker bass, the 4003W comes outfitted with a pair of single coil pickups. Both the bass and treble pickups sport independent volume and tone controls while additional sonic versatility is offered by the push/pull treble tone control knob that can take you from a vintage to modern bass sound on the fly. The RIC 4003W also comes equipped with a Mono output jack and Stereo output jack for enhanced flexibility.

High-quality chrome hardware includes a set of Schaller Deluxe open-geared tuning machines and a RIC bridge/tailpiece featuring a built-in damper to deliver that classic muted bass sound.
