    Comments about Rickenbacker 4003W:

    I bought this marvelous bass for my dad. He used to played with his fellow musicians back in the 70's and always wanted to have a Rickenbacker. Back on those days my mom (RIP) lend money to a friend to buy a 4003 fireburst... long story short, the mexican peso devaluated and he end up paying back just a fraction of that money, which turn my dad nuts. He resently talked to the guy, and he told him that he sold the Rickenbacker at a pawnshop...
    Nevermind, I'm glad he can now play this one. The wood and every piece of material that compose this bass guitar looks and feels beautiful. It came with a few scratches, but you have to look very close to note them.
    You will love to play it!

      Comments about Rickenbacker 4003W:

      This is the worst bass guitar I've ever played, period. Two thousand dollars worth of disappointment and aggravation. Obviously, it's going back to GC, ASAP. I've waited for decades to buy a 4003, only to discover that Rickenbacker is turning out garbage these days. I never met a 4003 I didn't like, until I bought this wreck of a bass. Everything about it is bad: wood quality, appearance, finish, sound, tone, action, neck, fretboard, balance, etc. I've seen better maple in baseball bats, and better walnut in tables and chairs. The case is garbage, too. Run, do not walk, away from this guitar. Yet another classic has fallen to corporate indifference and incompetence.

            Comments about Rickenbacker 4003W:

            Great playing and sounding bass with a few quirks. The rear pickup cover gets in my way so I installed a Treble Bezel. There's never really a good place to anchor my thumb so I'm just all over the place. The binding rubs against my arm when I play it close to the bridge so I avoid that. Still, with the individual volume and tone controls for each pup plus the switching and vintage tone circuit, this bass is very flexible and full of great tones. Mine is also very light and very beautiful. Great move by Rickenbacker to offer it in natural finish walnut.
