    It's a brand new 4003 so it has both vintage and modern circuitry, there's push/pull on the bridge pickup's tone knob, pull it out and you get Chris Squire, Getty Lee, Roger Glover,....ect,...push the knob in and you get a much deeper bass sound, you still get the treble, but mixed with a deeper bass sound.

    I probably should've mentioned right off that this is a very versatile bass as far as tone, by rolling off treble on the neck pickup, I can get nice fat P-Bass sound, only with a lot more sustain. That's what these beasts are known for, sustain,....sustain for days.

    This my first Rickenbacker, and my first bass, but it's the second neck-through I've owed, I used have a 64 Gibson Firebird I when I was in my 20's.

    Bass Player here. My guitar skills have something to be desired but I'm a better than average bass player.

    Tele basses are cool, they remind me of the 50's P-Basses (like the one Dusty Hill used in the early days of ZZ Top), with a different pickup of course. The pickup in your T-Bass, that's a humbucker, correct?

    Yes it is, I fried the original single coil and replaced it with the humbucker in '75. I bought that guitar in '72 for $100 with a hardcover case.

    Well a humbucker will definitely change the tone, less twang and more meat. My Ric has single coils in both the neck and bridge position. The humbucker you had installed, is that the same humbucker that Fender put in the Tele Custom? I know guitar and bass pickups can be used interchangeably, example: Rickenbacker used a guitar pickup in the neck position of the 4001 bass' back in the 60's, the same "toaster" pickup that they installed in the the 330's were in the neck of the 4001 bass.
