    So I've heard plenty of 4003s before but I'm interested to hear how people on TB play them. If you have any video, audio, or whatever, it'd be great to be able to check it out. Maybe you could post the year, any mods, and what strings you're using as well. Let's hear some Rics :D

    This was me playing my 2011 4003 last month. Rickenbacker-brand nickel rounds, only mod is pickup cover removed and treble bezel installed for easier finger play. The sound in the beginning is a Digitech Bass Synth Wah, the rest of the song is played through a Darkglass B3k into an Ampeg pf500/pf210he Portaflex.



    The cellphone mic that picked this up is struggling a bit.

    I'm a newcomer around these parts. Here's a track from my band's album.

    Ricki 4003 with Pro Steels split into a Sans Amp Bass DI, EBS Microbass DI and a 3rd straight into my 70s Traynor head and cab. The 3 blended together in the mix.

    The big dirty at the start comes from an Ashdown Lomenzo through the Sansamp.

    Is it kind of weird that I remember all this from 18 months ago?

    I'm sure there are more 4003 players that would love to show off for us?
