2006 Rickenbacker 4003 Custom - " Bee Geesus - It's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades"

 

Inspired by Maurice Gibb's refinished Rose-Morris 1999 and his lesser known white 4001 with deluxe trim.

Makes for a pretty unusual combination of Vintage meets Deluxe .

Equipped with 7.4K vintage toaster in neck position, Vintage reissue Horseshoe at the bridge.

Custom Rickysounds pickguard in White as Opal didn't look white enough for this bass, VIntage 'Toothgap" tailpiece and vintage control knobs.

The electronics retain the 4003 Vintage tone switch for a combination of old and new sounds.

In line with the hybrid nature of this creation we painted over the binding as it looked cream in comparison with the body colour.

Pickguards for this conversion are on our Pickguards page as "4003 Vintage Half inch".
