I was looking at the history tab at the diferent models, I notice the 4003-s was only mono. What happened to that model, and will ric ever make it again. I have 3 rics and have never used to stereo mode. A bass without this feature may be nice and a little cheaper to buy. I know we have the 4004 series, but from what has be said in the forums, this bass has a different sound. The 4003s had the same sound as a 4003.

I recently bought back my fireglo 4003S. I bought it new in 1990, and it has the slimmest neck of any Rick bass I've ever owned, and I currently have a C64s and a 4001CS. Its horns are a little chunkier, but killer sound, and what a neck. My only regret is that it's received a lot of knocks and I wish I'd have taken better care of it. Regarding production, I think a few have posed the question before, and I believe that sales were pretty low and Rick felt that they were better off concentrating on a regular 4003 and (at that time) the V series bass.

Just as during the production run of the 4001, with it's "standard" brother the 4001S, the 4003 had the 4003S, for a while. Neither S model was as popular as the Deluxe version, and were discontinued. I have a 4001S, among others.
