Hey I'm a new member(go easy on me) and I'm planning to buy a new bass near the end of the summer to replace my crappy Yamaha rbx-170. I've made up my mind that it's going to be a Rick but I don't know if I should get a 4001 or a 4003. I've read several reviews on various sites and heard alot of bad things about the newer 4003's neck and action. I've also heard that they made the neck of the 4003 wider than the one of the 4001, which is bad for me because I have small hands so the thinner the better. I'm leaning towards the 4001 but I'd like your guys' opinion on the matter. I'd like to know if what I've just said is true and I'd like to hear about your guys' personal experiences with Ricks. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
