    ....are rickenbackers getting smaller?

    I ask because i have a 2002 4003 and i went to buy a new amp and tried it with a 2004 model and the body seems much smaller, although the neck felt roughly the same...

    I was stoned at the time so this could be the reason, but has anyone else noticed this??

    The bodies have been changed. The dimensions on the wings are different. When you're not stoned, check out any bass made before 96-97 and you will find that the body wings are bigger than the later ones. Also, the pickguard shape has changed along with the headstck shape.
    :D

    Or maybe you're just getting bigger.
