Or just turn down the neck pickup volume a tad....
This is why I am a BIG fan of the neck pickup in the 1/2" location, or right up against the neck as in the 4004 and 4005 models. I frequently use harmonics all over the neck.
They look PERTTY! Just hope the B & G strings don't fly off the board when playing aggressively...
I played a fireglo and mapleglo tonight. Loved the tone and the neck on the fireglo was great, not so much on the mapleglo...it had a flatter spot from the second to fourth frets on the back of the neck. That’s a no go. Again, sounded great. Mighty interested.
So you felt that the B & G strings were secure and wouldn't 'fret out'? They seem awful close to the fretboard edge on both sides...
The one I played had no such issues.
Haven't noticed any issues with mine "fretting out"
Nope, I bent and did some slides. The fireglo played great. Nut was cut right
Plenty of space between string and fingerboard edge on my Walnut.
I'm having a hard time finding out how much these cost. Would anyone know what the the approximate street price is on these?
There are a number of them on Reverb already. Most of the listings are from retailers.
Rickenbacker in 5- and 6-String Basses
Give Wildwood a call. I paid less than any of those prices on Reverb or eBay.
I didn’t know that. That news is even better.
Starting to get a serious urge for a walnut 4003S/5...
Here's one 4003s/5 Walnut Reverb listing of Chicago Music Exchange at $2499. If you wait for July, potentially they'll include it with the 15% discount Reverb sale. (Who knows? Maybe if you contact CME directly, they could give you a deal now. Never know unless you ask.)
Rickenbacker 4003S/5 5-String Walnut | Chicago Music Exchange
Hmmm. I may go check it out, anyways!
Ha! I hadn't noticed you're already in Chicago. Happy hunting!
I want to get one of those and put black plastic and black hardware on it and swap out the bridge pickup for a stingray pickup and wire it to a toggle for single / series / parallel operation.
Or better yet … I will save $1000 and build my own
