Sound fit for the greatest bassists of all-time

Rickenbacker is a name that’s
permanently carved into the history of rock ‘n’ roll. The list of bassists to
use their guitars reads like a who’s who of the very best musicians to ever
walk the planet. Especially those to have used the 4001. From Paul McCartney to
John Entwistle. Phil Lynott to Roger Waters. Heard in the music of The Clash,
Queen, The Kinks, Muse, The Cure, Bee Gees, The Jam, and a seemingly endless
collection of other legendary artists. It helped make some of the best music
ever.

So you can be sure that the
Rickenbacker 4003s will deliver every last drop of that quality that made the
4001 so revered in the first place. Because its two single-coil pickups have
been designed to recreate those wide-reaching, warm, punchy tones that have
stood the test of time through decades of popular music. The sound you’ll get
from this amazing instrument eclipses anything you’ve ever had before. After
all, it’s good enough for the very best.

Singing sustain

Make every note count. Any bassist
will be familiar with the frustration of their basslines not quite cutting
through the mix when they’re playing in a band. The Rickenbacker 4003 seeks to
end this problem. A full maple neck-through-body expertly increases sustain in
each note you play. So you can let your basslines ring for longer, ensuring
everyone in your audience hears what you’re playing.

Make it your own

All the options you need to make your
bass perfectly suit your own playing style. Rickenbacker have loaded the 4003s with a number of features that’ll let you quickly and easily alter how your
bass sounds. Firstly, there’s 3-way pickup switching, letting you choose
between either of the two single coils, or both at the same time for a fuller,
bigger sound. There are also individual tone and volume controls for each
pickup. This means you can rapidly tweak your tone on-stage, even in the middle
of a song. 

Tremendous tuning

It goes without saying that staying
in tune is pretty essential for you to play at your best. So Rickenbacker have
made sure that your strings will stay pitch perfect for as long as possible.
They’ve fitted the 4003 with Schaller Deluxe tuning machines. These hold your
strings firmly in place, ensuring every note you strike is accurate and in-key.
And their super-strong grip means you won’t need to tune your bass as often.
Ideal for professional musicians.
