Rickenbacker 4003 Bass
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-30)
Price : US $1,005.
Iím selling my Rickenbacker 4003 bass. It was built in November 1990. I have owned it since about 1997.
Overall it is in good condition, but will need some minor attention to play like new again.
The body and paint are in good condition. All the original black hardware is intact. No cracks or repairs to the wood or binding. There is minor belt buckle rash on the back, and minor dings here and there. The sticker on the back of the headstock should come off without much trouble. There is a small crack in the truss rod cover by one of the screws. The tuners work smoothly. The neck is straight.
The original Rickenbacker hard case is in good condition, with small tears in the vinyl here and there. All the latches and hinges work properly, I do not have the keys.
The bass will need the following issues addressed:
It has significant bridge lift as shown in the photos. I understand this is common with this model, and can be remedied either by replacing the bridge, or having this bridge repaired.
The frets have some wear, and will need to be dressed or possibly refretted.
The input jack may need to be resoldered or replaced. It occasionally makes a crackle if you hit it just the right way. Other than this the pickups and controls work as they should. I have no way to test the Rick-o-sound function, but Iím sure it works fine.
I will pack and ship very carefully in a genuine Uline guitar shipping box. Shipping will be 3-day UPS or FedEx for a flat $80 in the 48 states, fully insured. I am hesitant to ship internationally because I have no real recours
