Had my eye on a Rickenbacker 4003 or 4003s for a few years now. On the odd occasion I get to play one it love it every time, totally killer rock bass. My concerns lie with its design and maintenance issues. I've heard some pretty negative stuff like: The neck is too flexible, the dual truss rods are a pain, the frets are too small and wear quickly, the bridge pretty much HAS to be replaced, Rick customer service blows and that it's pretty much the worst bass to gig/travel with at all. I understand that modern Rickenbacker's have a much improve design. Any Rick owners out there able to confirm or deny these worries before I drop almost 2k on one of these things? Thanks ya'll!
