OVERVIEW

Traditional style with updated pickups and a wider neck.

Rickenbacker is pleased to announce the return of the 4003S/5 string bass. This updated bass features an all new single coil pickup design, slightly wider string spacing, and a Schaller 3D-5 bridge. This is the walnut series version of the 4003S. The solid and natural look of a walnut body with a maple fingerboard. This version puts out even warmer bass tones than the maple version.

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 there's been a steady demand of requests to bring this back. 

This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the '60s. Iconic curves of maple form the body with a traditional rosewood fingerboard. Dot inlays and no binding make this stand out from the standard 4003. Includes hardshell case.
