Let's get one thing straight: we love Rics. Old ones, new ones, 4-strings, 6-strings...12-strings! Love. them.
This 4003 bass is in the classic Rickenbacker design in a Midnight Blue finish that keeps the traditional character of the instrument and maintains the famous sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass. It sports a beautiful maple neck with white binding around the maple body and the fingerboard (10" radius).
Speaking of the neck, this comfy, playable neck (typical Ric perfection) has a slim "D" profile (.896"-.915") with a 9.5" radius. The nut measures in at 1.706".
The electronics are fully stock with the traditional Ric single coil pickups (N: 11.06k, B:11.12k) and Mono and Stereo output jacks. The Treble Tone pot. isa push/pull that gives you access to that old school "original" Ric tone which is thinner and sharper when the pot is in the "out" position. All ingredients for an absolutely perfect bass for all our low end brethren.
It weighs in at a nice 9.3lbs!
This bass has been given a spot-on setup and fresh strings by our badass luthiers who've insured that this guy ships with zero issues and the intonation dialed in. It will ship the next day in the included soft case.
