Rickenbacker_4003_2019_Fab_Gear_Limited_Edition_Bass_Candy_Apple_Green_Green_Sparkle_LTD_Bass_Guitar_2NEW - Vintage is reimagined in this Fab Gear exclusive, 30-piece limited-edition run! With a stunning new Candy Apple Green finish, this bass is something truly special! We sat down with Rickenbacker at this year's winter NAMM show to design this bass, we chose some ultra cool specs like: checkerboard binding, vintage knobs, vintage nameplate, vintage toaster pickup in the neck, and more! These won't last long, so order yours today!

The Rickenbacker 4003 Bass is famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch, and solid underlying bottom end. It's also famous for its distinctive, elegantly curved body shape, accentuated by a subtle strip of binding, deluxe triangular fretboard inlays, stereo output, neck-thru-body construction, double truss rods, and high output single-coil pickups with wide response range and brilliant clarity. The Vintage Tone Selector activates a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasize the high end. Pressed in, you get the familiar 4003 sound, pull it out to add bite and crispness.

Rickenbacker_4003S_4003_Midnight_Blue_Bass_Guitar_4001_MB_2017_797654NEW – 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 six-ties. 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.
