Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2007 Rickenbacker 4003 in showroom clean, 100% original condition and in perfect working order with a custom color Blue Burst gloss finish. One of Rickenbacker's rarest and most desirable custom colors from the Color Of The Year program, this stunning Blue Burst gloss Ric comes complete with the original hangtags, case candy, and factory paperwork. Nothing beats the midrange character and tonal color of a Rickenbacker 4003, and this one has a wonderfully acoustically resonant body, weighing 9lbs 1oz. The growl and low end richness of this bass is fantastic, with the sustain that only comes from a neck through body design. One of the Tone controls also has a Push/Pull feature, adding a tone capacitor into the circuit for the slightly more sinewy sound of a '70s Rickenbacker 4001. Strung with 45-100 roundwound strings, we've had this Rickenbacker setup by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with comfortable action and accurate intonation.

The neck has a round and inviting C shaped profile carve with generous shoulder, measuring .870" deep at the 1st fret and .895" at the 12th. The fretboard is a reddish brown cut of rosewood with extremely dynamic, swirling grain patterns, and the stock fretwire is flawless. The neck is straight, both truss rods are responsive, and the bass plays well in all registers. The headstock features walnut wings on the maple core, accented by the "Rickenbacker" logo truss rod cover and boasting gleaming chrome-plated clover button tuners.

All of the electronics are stock and untouched, and the chrome hardware and plastic parts are like new, with the small foil "Made in USA" sticker still on the pickguard. There's barely a scratch on the custom color Blue Burst gloss finish.

The original Rickenbacker hardshell case is included, along with the original hangtag, polish cloth, and factory paperwork.
