Did not like. I love the way they look and sound. I do not like the way they feel. I typically play with a pick and it feels like the pickup cover is in exactly the wrong spot. Can't play comfortably. Additionally, I do a lot of palm muting in my music and of course with that bridge it's impossible. But even if I were to replace the bridge, I'd have to also remove the pickup protector thing in order to be able to rest my palm in the right place and also get to the strings. I'd really be unable to play my songs properly with this bass. Am I the only one who feels like this about the 4003? If I take off the pickup cover and replace the bridge will it even be a Ric anymore?
