4003S/5 MBL

2 models to choose from:


This traditional Rickenbacker bass 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 comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch Rickenbacker is known for make it a dream. It's no wonder this bass remains in steady demand. 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.
