Rickenbacker 4003 🍁 Stereo Bass | 1995

Rickenbacker 4003 🍁 Stereo Bass | 1995

The Iconic Rickenbacker Bass. In Stereo. This 4003 all-maple construction treble beast ... in a mapleglo finish, is now available from our store in Sliema, Malta. High quality maple built in the 90s, that's a combo that is not worth missing. It is a used bass with a few marks of use around the body, some shallow dings here and there, none that effect its playability. The bass is all original and has been set up to its very perfection. One of the easiest and effortless playing bass guitars out there, you have to try it out to believe it! Comes along the original hard case. 


With their punchy treble, solid bottom end, and ringing sustain, Rickenbacker basses helped forge the sound of classic rock in the capable hands of progressive bassists such as Chris Squire, Paul McCartney, and Geddy Lee. It’s an iconic sound, and there’s only one way to get it. Today’s formidable Rickenbacker 4003 delivers those inimitable bass tones, along with stereo output, in a sleek instrument that’s primed for a new millennium.


The Rickenbacker 4003 is crafted from high-grade maple. Maple is very stable, aiding in maintaining the structural integrity of the neck, which runs through the entire length of the body. The density of maple — and the neck-through design — is largely responsible for the instrument’s famous bite and growl. The thick rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of warmth and harmonic complexity, balancing out the bright high end with powerful, rich bass.


Stereo Rick-O-Sound output opens up a palette of sonic possibilities

Rickenbacker spec’d the 4003 bass with two output jacks. The first is a standard mono output. The second is a stereo Rick-O-Sound output, which outputs both pickups as a separate signal. Why let your guitarist and keyboard player have all the fun? Just think about the possibilities! You could send the neck pickup to one amp and the bridge pickup to another. Pan the pickups hard left and hard right. Insert different effects pedals in each signal path to craft immersive stereo soundscapes. 


The 4003’s potent sonic elixir is delivered through two single-coil pickups, mono/stereo output, and push-pull vintage/modern voicing for immense tonal versatility. The 4003 unique body shape gives it the traditional Rickenbacker bass look and comfortable balance, whether you’re playing seated or standing. Forge your own legendary sound with the Rickenbacker 4003 bass.
