I would like to get one used on the bay, I can see both 4001 and 4003 i guess the 4003 series replaced the 4001, how would you compare them? I'm going to get it shipped to europe, i live in sweden. So, how you think they can handle slap and metal, it looks impossible to a slap a 4003 with the bridge pickup covering the strings or whatever it does, but metal? i heard somebody say arch enemy used a rick for a time. The only clips i've heard of a ric is chris squier and i have to say it sounds great!
