RICKENBACKER 4003 Matte Black

Four-string electric bass with full-length neck, two single-coil pickups and passive electronics, case included

The Rickenbacker 4003 Matte Black four-string bass is one of the greatest classics in the history of the electric bass and not without reason. With its unmistakable design by Roger Rossmeisl, the electric bass has an incredible stage presence. The traditional maple construction with a full-length neck and two single-coil pickups delivers a sound with a strong character and enormous assertiveness. Last but not least, the Rickenbacker 4003 Matte Black electric bass features the traditional Rickenbacker bridge with mute assembly and precise Schaller Deluxe tuners.

RICKENBACKER 4003 Matte Black
The Rickenbacker 4003 convinces with its striking design and the typical brilliant sound.

Rickenbacker 4003 Matte Black with neck through constuction

For the construction of the Rickenbacker 4003, the company from Santa Ana, California, has always relied on the neck through construction method. Here the neck through is made in one piece from maple and glued to the body wings, which are also made of maple. Together they provide the basis for the brilliant Rickenbacker sound. With the slim "C" profile, the neck also lies comfortably in the hand, so that every note comes naturally on the 20-fret Caribbean Rosewood fretboard.

Two Single-Coils for the Rickenbacker sound

Two Rickenbacker single-coil pickups are used as pickups on the Rickenbacker 4003, which together with the passive electronics provide the typical Rickenbacker sound. Accordingly, a brilliant sound with lively dynamics is available at the amplifier, which asserts itself perfectly in the band sound. The 3-way toggle for pickup selection and separate volume and tone controls allow for a wide range of tonal colors. Another special feature is the "Vintage Tone" circuit for the bridge pickup, which when activated, delivers the particularly bright sound of the original Rickenbacker basses.

Reliable hardware

Last but not least the Rickenbacker 4003 Matte Black convinces with reliable hardware equipment in authentic vintage style. The body features the strikingly designed Rickenbacker bass bridge, which allows for precise intonation and comfortable string action. In addition, the Mute Assembly, which can be adjusted via two Thumb Screws, offers the possibility of damping the string vibration. Last but not least, Schaller Deluxe tuners guarantee precise tuning of the bass.
