NAMM 2015: Rickenbacker launches new guitar and bass models

Rickenbacker will unveil the new 1993Plus guitar and 4003S bass series at this year’s Winter NAMM.

The 1993Plus is an updated version of the Model 1993, enhanced with a 3.1 mm wider neck, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard and two-piece neck design fitted with a round heel for comfort.

This 12-string design comes with three vintage reissue pickups, stereo output, trapeze tailpiece, vintage knobs and F-hole. X-bracing in the body is designed to bring out a full, rich and warm sound. The 1993Plus will be available in Fireglo, Jetglo and Mapleglo.

RRP: £3,770

On the bass front, the updated 4003S version comes with a dual trussrod system designed to produce the solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch Rickenbacker are known for. All instruments come with mono output, as well as standard Model 4003 single coil pickups, keywinds and pickguards.

4003S

Curves of maple form the body with a traditional Rosewood fingerboard. Dot inlays and no binding make this stand out from the standard 4003. Available in Fireglo, Jetglo, Mapleglo, Midnight Blue and Ruby.

RRP: £1,950   

4003SW

The solid and natural look of a walnut body with a maple fingerboard. This version is designed to produce warmer bass tones than the maple version.

RRP: £1,950

Rickenbacker will be at Booth #5326 Hall B at NAMM 2015.
