What We Say

A left handed Rickenbacker bass in a finish other than Fireglo or Jetglo, are you mad? Well, that's what my boss said, but when something's as cool as this sometimes you have to take a risk... 

If the 60s was defined for Rickenbacker by their semi hollow Capri range, the 70s were all about the basses, from prog to hard rock to punk, Ric basses were everywhere. They're unique things that snarl and thunder like nothing else, full of ringing harmonics and with gigantic sustain. This one looks great in the Midnight Blue finish - Mat Osman of Suede has been weilding a Midnight Blue 4003 on recent tours and we happily defer to Suede when it comes to style choices - and it has all of the tonal characteristics you'd expect of a Ric bass. Except upside down, obviously.

What They Say

The Classic Rickenbacker bass - famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass. A subtle strip of binding graces the elegantly curved body and the Rosewood fingerboard. Deluxe triangular inlays and stereo capability are standard features.
