    Cheers, Here we have a Beautiful RIC 4003. They only made a couple of these each month in late 2020.

    Rare Checkerboard binding
    New Single Dual acting Truss Rod design
    Gorgeous Satin finish
    Under 9.5LB per Bath scale method
    Balances extremely well
    Loud and proud E string(Best I ever had on a RIC)
    Gorgeous Rosewood Fingerboard
    New V2 Bridge

    I am interested in 5 string basses as trades or possibly a Spector NS-2. I would also trade for a 4003 in Jet-Glo + some $$ coming my way.
    I would prefer a local NJ/Eastern PA deal and really don't want to do any shipping.

    This beauty is in brand new condition. I removed the truss rod cover just to show that it's a single truss rod.

    Please PM all questions and offers.

    Here are a few Pictures:

    Such a good deal. Would you happen to have a weight?

    I am honestly only playing my 5 string Mayones now. So This RIC along with two other basses are just going to sit in their cases. I am really not too worried about the $$. I will lose money on this bass and it's as brand new as it gets.

    Many of the newer special runs have them. I think maybe the 4003AC Al Cisneros was the 1st.

    Preferred Trades: Sadowsky Metro Jazz 5(MV/RV or MS/RS), Spector, Any Nice Jazz bass really. Also would trade for other RIC 4003's +/- $$. (No Zero-Fret basses please)
    Hit me up, you may be surprised.
