Rickenbacker 4003S/5 - Matte Black For Sale

Rickenbacker 4003S/5 - Matte Black For Sale. When Paul McCartney and Chris Squire purchased their first 4001S models in 1964, they appreciated this traditional Rickenbacker bass style with dot inlays and no binding. Players enjoy it because of its traditional design and rounded edges, which many believe make it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S variant has the improved twin trussrod system. It is a dream, of course, because to the resonant sustain, snappy treble, and well-known robust bass tones. That there has been a constant yearning for us to bring this back makes sense. The only distributor of this style in the 1960s was the British company Rose Morris.

Paul McCartney and Chris Squire valued this conventional Rickenbacker bass type with dot inlays and no binding when they acquired their first 4001S versions in 1964. With its conventional appearance and rounded edges, which many feel make it more comfortable than the 4003, players like it. The enhanced twin trussrod system is included in the revised 4003S version. Of course, the resounding sustain, punchy treble, and well-known strong bass tones make it a dream. It makes sense that there has been a consistent desire for us to bring this back. In the 1960s, the British distributor Rose Morris had the exclusive rights to this design. The body is formed by iconic maple curves, while the fingerboard is often made of Rosewood. This 4003 stands out from the norm because to its dot inlays and lack of binding.
