Today's reissue of the formidable Rickenbacker 4003 delivers those inimitable bass tones, along with stereo output, in a sleek instrument that's primed for a new millennium. Forge your own legendary sound with the Rickenbacker 4003 bass.
The Rickenbacker 4003 is crafted from high-grade maple. Maple is very strong, aiding in maintaining the structural integrity of the neck, which runs through the entire length of the body. The density of maple — and the neck-through design — is largely responsible for the instrument's famous treble punch and sustain. The thick rosewood fingerboard adds warmth and harmonic complexity, balancing out the bright high end with strong, rich bass. The 4003's body binding and block inlays add a touch of elegance to the traditional Rickenbacker bass look.
Rickenbacker spec'd the 4003 bass with two output jacks. The first is a standard mono output. The second is a stereo Rick-O-Sound output, which outputs both pickups as a seperate signal. You could send the neck pickup to one amp, and the bridge pickup to another. Pan the pickups hard left and hard right. Insert different effects pedals in each signal path to craft immersive stereo soundscapes. The possibilities are endless! With the Rickenbacker 4003, you're no longer relegated to simply holding down the bottom end.
