Ric 4003 vs 4001 ?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by smo, Mar 11, 2009.

  1. Hi all,

    Rickenbacker 4003 vs 4001
    (Or even a Greco or Aria Pro II lawsuit)

    I'm thinking about importing one of these, as where I live I have absolutely NO CHANCE at try before buy.

    I'm after a 4 string fretted only. Not fussy on colour at all.

    I'm leaning towards the 4003, simply due to the neck warp issues I've read about with the 4001's - is it really an issue?

    Which one would you go for, and why?
    And what years are the best to hunt for?

    Thanks everyone,

    This was just disscused today. But go with either one 4003 can cop a 4001 tone via push/pull cap. Do not go lawsuit, they never match up to rics standards, and never will. The truss in the 4003 is better but many still prefer 4001. All up to you
  3. This topic gets raped daily..

    Do a search :rollno:
