Friday Night-Shift 4003?
David3602, 12.12.2016
This is my second Ricky 4003. The first was made in 2000. This 2015 model seems to have been thrown together. It took me 2 whole days to set up properly - and then I couldn't figure out why the signal was so weak (with or without coil tap). The stereo output was mono and identical to the weak mono output. I ended up taking it to a profession guitar repair company who advised that the wiring did not comply to Rickenbacker's own diagram, even. Anyway, having got it fixed and set up (for 60's sound) it is now brilliant. Just a shame it wasn't perfect on delivery like the first one (70's set up). Thomann chappies, please feel free to pass this on to Rickenbacker. Would I buy another if one got destroyed? Yes, absolutely! Once sorted out, they are great basses.

Dream Bass
Araldo Scerri, 07.10.2015
Finally I got the Bass Guitar I always wanted. Being a lefty is not always what you want but what's available, but this is one bass I always wanted. The finish is awesome. great sound, great playablity. As always, Thomann service is also great as usual.
