6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Maple Body for Bright, Sustained Sound

The Rickenbacker 4003's body is constructed from solid maple and fashioned into a distinctive and unique design to create a stylish instrument. The maple body produces a tastefully complex and clean tone, brightening up the top end whilst tightening the lower end. Maple also offers superb sustain with plenty of bite. Its unique shape also provides a comfortable playing experience whilst promoting the access to upper fingerboard shredding.

Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Rickenbacker’s 4003 features a rosewood fingerboard that’s bound to a maple neck for added stability while offering a stylish look. Its neck-through body achieves an extraordinary amount of sustain. Additionally, the guitar's neck produces a tight, snappy attack with sizzling highs and firm lows, whilst the rosewood fingerboard helps keep the tone mellow, adds clarity, and offers some sparkle to the highs and thickens up the lows.

Pickups

Not only does the 4003 Bass guitar provide a distinctive appearance, it also features two single coil pickups that deliver its renowned ringing sustain, treble punch and underlying bass tones that Rickenbacker are known for. These pickups can be controlled via the volume and tone controls, along with the toggle switch. The bridge pickup also features a horseshoe pickup cover, which not only adds a visual appeal but also provides a clean tone, and a handy finger rest.
