    Has anyone heard of the Rickenbacker 4003 5 string? I really want to get a Rickenbacker (because I'm really into the sound Geddy Lee had during the early Rush records), and would also like to get a five string. Does anyone know if it is a true 5 string, or did they just slap a low B on a 4003? If anyone has any information please help!!

    The 4003/5 is strung with a low B. The neck is only 1/16" wider at the nut so string spacing is quite tight.

    It also has 4001S features (mono wiring, no binding or neck inlay).
