Oooooh! johntheleftybassist is not going to be happy that you found this before he did!

Awesome score! Are you going to replace the jack with a stereo jack?

Nah. I never used the stereo thing on any of the other ones I owned.

Me too man. It’s a little more off the beaten path I think.

The regular 4003 does, but the 4003S is a slightly stripped down version without the triangular inlays and bindings and with rounded body edges. I think the S version is prettier, and more comfortable too.

Looks great Matt! I love these in Midnight Blue.

Yep it’s sort of a cool hybrid of the older 4001 models & modern 4003 models.

Fun fact:

I managed to damage the coil on the bridge pickup the other day (after a whopping 2 days of ownership) while installing a treble bezel on this bass. So now, since there’s no warranty coverage for being a dumbass, the pickup is currently on the way to Lindy Fralin to be re-wound. :roll:

Yeah it’s annoying. I have to laugh at myself. Not even sure how exactly I did it. It’s an easy installation that I’ve done several times with no problem. Oh well. :oops:

Turns out, the pickup is fine. It wasn't grounded properly :roll:

Sorry for the confusion, just wanted to be transparent since I'm selling.

This bass is for sale here if anyone is interested:
