Review for: Rickenbacker 4003 Bass
Purchase price of 995 USD
Rating: 5.0
Comments:As mentioned earlier, I'm a Fender Precision Bass fan ('79 Natural finish/rosewood fingerboard/tortoise pickguard, badass bridge, and Duncan Vintage P pickup). So this review is coming from a Fender Bias:
I REALLY ENJOY PLAYING 4003! Especially after swapping pickups and removing the vestigial, yet aesthetically pleasing chrome bridge pickup cover. In my opinion, it defines what a great instrument should be: it sounds great, plays smooth, is solidly built,and is completely unique.
Since I've made it my main bass, it has caused quite a stir with other players. They are surprised at the bottom end fullness and the growling tone. Non-musicians just think it is pretty! Bottom line: It makes me feel special when I play it, which is worth the price alone. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
