What we say:

At A Glance:

The Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Mapleglo features a classic design that's been updated for the contemporary player. With a maple body and stunning Mapleglo  finish, Schaller Deluxe tuners and Single coil pickups, the 4003 certainly has a classic sound and obviously nails that iconic look, but as soon as you play it, you'll realise that it has the feel of a modern instrument that can certainly go the distance.

Features We Love:

Solid Body

The solid maple body is a key part of this guitar's amazing sound. With a fat low end, punchy sustain and crisp high end, the 4003 has been cherished by many an iconic bass player, including Lemmy, Peter Buck and Cliff Burton.

Single Coil Pickups

The pair of single-coil pickups precisely capture every note and combine them with the resonant body to deliver a gutsy tone that always cuts through a mix.

Vintage Looks

There is no mistaking that classic look of a Rickenbacker and the 4003 has managed to keep that alive and well. The ornate body design and chrome handrest are a great nod of the hat to times gone by, but also keep the standards high as they are throughout this astounding model.
