Used 1998 Rickenbacker 4003 Bass w/ Case - Black


In 1931, Adolph Rickenbacker and George D. Beauchamp founded the Los Angeles-based Electro String Instrument Corporation. This pioneering firm produced "Rickenbacker Electro Instruments," the first modern electric guitars and later grew into The Rickenbacker International Corporation (RIC).

RIC has been building quality instruments since then and have been on the leading edge of music trends that have changed popular culture forever.

Played by Hawaiian musicians of the 1930s to jazz bassists of the 1990s, by the Beatles and Byrds to 80s/90s rock groups on MTV, and even modern musicians, the ringing sound of Rickenbacker instruments has helped define music as we know it. RIC continues to produce some of the finest, most unique, and highest quality instruments available.

This Rickenbacker, the 4003 bass, is notably characteristic for its ringing sustain, treble punch, and solid underlying bass, providing you with unique versatility for any genre. The elegantly curved body also gives way to extreme comfort to suit your needs.

This bass has minor wear and tear, some dings and scratches, but nothing to affect the play-ability or sound. Overall good condition.
