“Rickenbacker 4003W”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by Sullivank1968 (1 review written)

I just received my new 4003W Ric bass and it is a beauty. I have several basses mostly Fender P's, a Fender Victor Bailey acoustic bass, a Sting Pbass with a telecaster maple neck, and a Hofner Beatle bass. I love them all and I have always wanted a Ric but never had enough cash for one. I now am the proud owner of a new walnut 4003W, and I love it. I do admit that getting used to the crisp growl sound is hard on someone who was used to Pbasses, but the versatility in the sounds this Ric can… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2009

A little tweak of the truss rods (double on this model) and… Read Full Review

After years of wanting, I managed to get a Rickenbacker 4003. This is the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few). The build quality is fantastic. The sound is exactly waht you would expect from A Ricky, tons of bottom end and enough searing top to take your head off. Mine has the 'vintage tone' control which means it has extra versitility. It can switch from a modern 4003 to a 70's 4001 by engaging the extra tone capacitor in the bridge pickup. Straight out of the box… Read Full Review

No problems at all with the guitar after five years of ownership, which included a complete dunking in a swimming pool while attached to a live amp! Rock and Roll lifestyle, I think… Read Full Review
