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.
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.
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.
