The Rickenbacker 4003S Pillar Box Red is elegantly simple, with an unmistakable curved body and maple fingerboard. The 4003S comes with no-nonsense black dot inlays on the fretboard, and has a single jack input. It now comes with a vintage tone control (accessed via a push/pull switch on the treble tone knob), which adds bite and crispness. Also new for 2020 is an improved V2 bridge with roller saddles.

There are only 25 of these Pillarbox Red finish 4003s basses in existence

This traditional Rickenbacker bass style with dot inlays and no binding was prized by Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they got their first 4001S models in 1964. Players cherish its traditional look and rounded edges that many claim makes it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S version comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch we’re known for make it a dream. This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the six-ties. Dot inlays and no binding make this stand out from the standard 4003.
