2003 Rickenbacker 4003, Montezuma Brown. Excellent ++ condition. Serial number 03 32992. Montezuma Brown was Rickenbacker's colour of the year in 2003. It proved so popular it became the only shade from the colour of the year series to be officially extended. Orders could be made throughout 2003 & 2004 and production continued to fulfil those orders up to and including 2006. Some of these basses came factory fitted with a toaster pickup instead of the high gain. This bass has the toaster fitted. I can't be certain if this is how it came out of the factory, but it was an option at the time. This one also features a bone nut ( definitely not factory) 

This particular bass features some very nice wood grain which you can see through the finish. There's a very small chip in the lacquer on the front of the body which has taken a bit of finish off with it. (right up close to the binding on the upper edge) Other than that there are only the slightest signs of play wear to the finish and the metal work is still shiny. All round lovely bass. This colour is very hard to take pictures of accurately. The red you see in the finish is more subtle in real life. 

Fully set up with a fresh set of strings and a great playing action. The truss rods work as they should and the neck is straight. The frets are in great shape showing virtually no wear. All electronics and hardware are in good working order with no issues. Weight 9lbs 5oz. Nut width 43.25mm. Depth at 1st fret 24.95mm. Supplied with a 3-month warranty.

Condition Excellent ++ 9.5/10
