I've been considering buying a new Rickenbacker 4003 for a number of years now, and for the first time I'm very seriously considering buying one. Does anyone have any tips or playing experiences with one? How highly would you recommend one? I play finger style bass in a thrash metal band, and I've heard nothing but good things about the tone and playability. Just wondering if anyone has any helpful advice as to where I should purchase one or any experience (good or bad) with the instrument. Thanks!
