So, I love the sound of the Rickenbacker 4003, but I haven't played one. I know that most of the people that hate it because of the neck. Would it be truely impossible to modify/create a bass to the point where it sounds like a Ric? I don't really know anything about how the Ric sound is achieved, so I obviously do not know what I am talking about, but for those that do, would it be possible? What is so bad about the neck anyway? Is it any better since they made the change?
