1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Yeah I know, alot know already but THE NEW RICKENBACKER 4003W!

    If I was a millionaire and didn't care about money, I'd have about 20 Rics and they would all be different.... and this would be one of them.

    Nice looking bass. They're kinda $pendy like Fender CS stuff right?

    Wait, what? I mean, I guess I can't knock them for trying, but they introduce that over say...a 4003S? I like it, but it just seems like such an...odd choice.

    They've done maple fingerboard basses (and guitars) for decades now, depending on the model; some were painted and others were clear coated.

    The walnut headstock looks better here than it does on the Mapleglo basses. I dig it!

    Gawd I love this thing! I think the W stand for "Want" or "Wow". Either way, gorgeous.
