2010 FireGlo Rickenbacker 4003 Bass (consignment) SOLD

Here’s a lovely, near mint 2010 FireGlo Rickenbacker 4003 Bass. The 4003 Bass is the successor to the 4001, which it finally fully replaced in 1986.

Visually, the differences between the 4001 and 4003 are subtle. However, the 4003 sports a different truss rod system with adjusters at either end of the neck, and updated wiring.

Rickenbacker 4001 Bass 1976 (consignment) SOLD

Rickenbacker basses (and guitars) have always been sought after, but the company has never tried to grow to the size of Fender or Gibson, intstead keeping their production in their plant and doing a lot of hand work. This example, unlike many, is in original condition; many of these basses were modified to accept heavier bridges.
