Brand new 2021 model. Latest spec, featuring the much-requested oiled fretboard (instead of the previous high gloss fretboard) - a player friendly option, improving playability.
We're proud to announce that we are now offering brand new, factory fresh Rickenbacker guitars. Due to their extremely limited production, Rickenbackers have been largely unavailable here for many years. Supply is still limited, but we have large backorders in place. Please get in touch to reserve yours!This traditional Rickenbacker bass style 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 version comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch we’re known for make it a dream. It’s no wonder we’ve received a steady demand of requests to bring this back. This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the six-ties. 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.
