Rickenbacker_4003_CB_VP_Limited_Edition_Fab_Gear_Model_2018_Exclusive_SnoGlo_Snow_Glow_White_Bass_Guitar_32423NO LOGNER AVAILABLE - Vintage is reimagined in this Fab Gear exclusive, 25-piece limited-edition run! When we worked directly with Rickenbacker to design this super cool Bass, we decided on was: a double-bound body with 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.

All 25 of these basses have been sold, we've kept this post up for archival purposes.
