What we say:
Bass players the world over have shown a huge amount of love for Rickenbacker basses. The unique shape, feel and sound add up to a playing experience immediately different form the other main bass guitar designs out there. The 4003 itself comes in a few variations, this being the 'S' model, which has dot inlays and no neck binding. This gives a rounder feel which some players think is more comfortable than the bound version. Certainly, players like Paul McCartney and Yes's Chris Squire have used them to great effect.
This Jetglo (Rickenbacker's eccentric term for...Black) model has a scale length of 33 1/4", which is a tiny little bit less than the standard 34" scale. This is a mono output instrument with a set of two single coil pickups. It's all about attitude and striking the correct pose with this bad boy, it's the kind of instrument that tells you how it should be played! Like all Rickenbackers, this 4003S is hand made to the highest standards in California.
