As posted a few pages back, I paid $1750 for my 4003SW 5.
Walnut 5 on order. The waiting is the hardest part...
Any idea how long?
They’re saying a few weeks.
This may be blasphemy but I would really like to see a four string version of this (and yes, I do have a 4003SW).
Has anyone seen custom PGs for these being made anywhere?
For clarification, do you mean a 4-string with those pickups?
Yup, and that bridge too.
I admit I didn't like the look of the pickups at first, but they're starting to grow on me.
Strangely, I want nachos after seeing these basses.
And I want upside down shark fin inlayed fret markers to match the pickups.
That's a very good idea.
That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the new 5 strings, “why didn’t they match the triangle inlays”?
Ok, here is the plan. Somebody with Photoshop skills... Please add the shark fin inlays to the new Rickenbacker 5. And send it to Rickenbacker labeled "For NAMM 2020 Please."
Can anyone who has actually played the 4003/5 and who also owns a 4003 compare the tone of the 2 basses? How much does the fiver sound like a 4001/3?
I would say that they sound pretty close, with the 5 string having perhaps a slightly mellower tone. It'll do a pretty good rendition of the Chris Squire clank though, so I'd be ok with just having the five string as my "desert island" bass.
...and it will come back with an infringement notice from Hall’s legal team. Lol
Ha! The legal notice will begin with... "How dare you tell us what you want to purchase! You will take what we are providing and you will be happy. Understood?"
By the way, here's a video from band practice last week. We're a country band, and this is an Eagles song, so I'm aiming for a Randy Meisner type of Ric sound. Running the bass through a Tech 21 Q\Strip for some EQ, into an Ampeg PF-800 running 4 SVT speakers in two 2x10 cabs. Of course, YouTube compresses the sound considerably. Nature of the beast, and all that.
Sounds, great. Now the sound dude needs to bring you up a bit in the mix.
