Following a chronic under -supply of RICs to these shores in recent years we’re delighted to offer this beautiful Fireglo’ 4003, albeit at a price which reflects the recent fairly hefty price increases. That said, if you’ve got to have one you’ve got to have one so resistance is futile!!! Fireglo’ is (along with Jetglo’ & Mapleglo’) one of the 3 classic RIC colours.
The rest you know…bags of mid-punch, solid bottom end and rasping top end if needed. The Vintage Tone Control allows you to switch capacitors to give the rear pickup a vintage 4001 treble ‘honk’ or, push it in and it injects more bass into the bridge pickup giving you greater tonal flexibility and an even fatter bottom end.
We think that the RIC is the most iconic bass on planet earth, immortalised by such notables as Lemmy, Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, Paul McCartney and on the list goes…
