Hey guys, been awhile since I posted.. I was just offered a 1997 Mapleglo (exact finish i want) Rickenbacker 4003 for $1200. While I don't exactly have the money & I'd have to sell my All custom MIA P-bass (which would break my heart to, I put so much work into it).. Rickenbackers are my dream basses. After playing a 4003 a fews year ago, I was absolutely hooked with the style, sound, and playability. But my question was, how do they compare to then newer 4003s? I know they probably don't have that vintage switch or whatever, but hows the neck compare, or the finish? etc. etc. Thanks.
