NAMM 2015: New Rickenbacker Models

Press Release

THE 1993PLUS, CLASSIC PERFECTION
Pete Townshend asked Rickenbacker to update his beloved Model 1993 guitar and they were only too happy to oblige. The result is the 1993Plus, enhanced with a 1/8 inch (3.1 mm) wider neck, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard and more stable two-piece neck design fitted with a round heel for comfort.

This classic 12-string design comes standard with three vintage reissue pickups, stereo output, trapeze tailpiece, vintage knobs and F-hole. Double body binding and pearlescent inlays add a refined touch. X-bracing in the body helps to bring out the full, rich and warm sounds our instruments are known for. The haunting, melodic chorus characteristics of our 12-strings continue to benefit from evolution. The original 1993 design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the sixties.

Available in Fireglo, Jetglo and Mapleglo.
CODE: 501993P12 (FG/JG/MG)
RRP: £3,770

THE 4003S SERIES, BRINGING BACK A CLASSIC
This traditional Rickenbacker bass style with dot inlays and no binding was prized by Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they recieved their first 4001S models back in 1964. Players cherish the traditional look and rounded edges that many claim make it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S version comes with the improved dual trussrod system and of course the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch Rickenbacker are known for. This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the sixties. All instruments come with mono output, as well as standard Model 4003 single coil pickups, keywinds and pickguards.

4003S
Iconic 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.

4003SW
The solid and natural look of a walnut body with a maple fingerboard. This version puts out even warmer bass tones than the maple version. The latest addition to the popular W Series Rickenbacker introduced in 2014.
CODE: 504003SW
RRP: £1,950
