Sadly, I need to sell this beautiful 2010 Rickenbacker 4003 in delightful Mapleglo. This is in excellent condition for a gigging Rickenbacker. It comes with the official Rickenbacker case and has been fitted with an aftermarket black bezel (the original cover is included).

 

There are a few marks, all pictured. There is a tiny amount of tail-lift, which is expected with a Ricky of this age. It doesn't affect the intonation or the way it plays. The bass is currently strung with GHS flats. The frets are, as you can see, in excellent order and it plays wonderfully all the way up and down the neck. The truss rod is fully functioning.

 

It looks like a Rick, plays like a Rick and sounds absolutely thunderous! It also has the push-pull pot to enable you to access the famous 60s vintage Rickenbacker sounds.

 

The case is in excellent condition too, however, there is a slight crack on top which I have pictured. It doesn't impact the functioning of the case, but it's essential I mention this.

 

I've enjoyed owning this bass, it's a beautifully made thing, I just need to free up some cash from home renovations.

 

I'm looking for £1500 delivered to your door in the UK.

Great price, lovely bass type bump

 

PS, can I suggest you weigh the bass as that may help your sale, especially if its one of the lighter ones (under 9.5 pounds)?

sorry I’m a noob, what exactly is tail lift? Absolute beauty btw!


Ahh, so the bridge itself can sometimes lift a little bit away from the body over time. This happens on most, if not all, Rickenbackers. It’s nothing to worry about, but I wouldn’t feel right not mentioning it. The lift here is no greater than a sheet of two of paper.

it can be seen in the 4th picture - its where the tension of the strings can over time cause the heel end of the bridge to lift slightly from the surface of the bass. Commonly seen in older Ricks and, as long as not extreme, not an issue
