Hello again Folks in TB, I'm very tempted to buy a used Rickenbacker 4003, by its serial number it is manufactured in Aug. 92. Do you Rickenbacker lovers know if 92 was a good year for the 4003 model? What should I look for? The bass seems to be in good conditions, thus neck is stable and didn't need any adjustment in the last 10 years. The frets are in good shape and so goes for the electronics. So to summarize, the bass is in very good playing conditions. It do have some nicks and dents, small ones on the body, natural road worn. But neck is fine. The Rick is missing the original cover for the neck pup, no big deal for me. I've tried a Rick with it, but as a pick player, it is restricting me for my ideal hand position. The price of the Rick is half of a new 4003. Any thoughts?
