Make your great instrument greater with the new Hipshot redesigned Rickenbacker Bass Bridge!
Just replaced the stock 38(!) year old Rick bridge on my 4001 with this Hipshot. The bridge did not change the sound of my Rickenbacker, but for the first time in its life the intonation is perfect, and the string height is where I like it to be. I replaced the original bridge because of "tail-lift"...the only problem I encountered with this project is the screws that are provided with the bridge are garbage. The screws are longer than the original Rickenbacker screws. I neglected to drill the holes deeper, because after all I was screwing them in wood, using a hand screwdriver, well of course the first screw snapped in half when it met the smallest amount of resistance. So drill your holes deeper or use better screws. If it weren't for the cheap screws this would have been a 5 star review.
