Rickenbacker 4003S Bass Walnut

The Rickenbacker 4003S is based on the classic 4001S models from '64, popularised by players like Paul McCartney and Chris Squire. The lack of binding gives it a more traditional look, while the rounded edges make it more comfortable than the 4003.

Product Description


Rickenbacker 4003S Bass Walnut

This traditional Rickenbacker bass style with dot inlays and no binding was prized by Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they got their first 4001S models in 1964. Players cherish its traditional look and rounded edges that many claim make it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S version comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch we’re known for make it a dream. It’s no wonder we’ve received a steady demand of requests to bring this back. This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the sixties. 

This walnut edition features a satin finished walnut body and maple neck and fingerboard. The thin satin finish theoretically increases acoustic resonance and adds a played-in feel.
