Title: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Chris P. on May 12, 2008, 04:47:21 AM
I'm busy with getting some pics in my Photobucket, so I thought: Let's make a nice RicPic thread here:)

Guilty. LOL. Funny thing, I kinda did the opposite of McCartney, the 4001S is originally MG so I had to give it a FG finish then splatter the MMT thing over that. I substituted the teal for the silver/grey he used, just didn't care for the silver and decided I didnt want it to be an exact copy of his. One night, after a 6-pack of Shiners I went to the shed and got the paint out...I'm happy with the results. It's probably been 10 years ago now.
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: ilan on May 15, 2008, 07:13:04 AM
Wouldn't it be cool if RIC did a limited run of MMT replicas? Basically a custom paint job on non-S c64's. How about 70 basses for McCartney's 70th birthday, in 2012? Maybe get him to sign them... with a spray can  ;D

So...it was the Shiner Bock that made you do it! Wonder how things would have turned out if you'd had a 6-pack of Dos Equis? 

And all this time I assumed this was your "Tragical History Tour" bass.  ;D  But then the street sign would have to say "Denny Lane,", right.  ;)

Speaking of that...if I didn't already know your Penny Lane story, I would ask you where the street sign in that photo came from. But you've showed the pic several times on different boards, and nobody ever asks. Guess nobody else is curious.  :-\

This is my "Tragical History Tour" bass, used in my Rutles tribute band(which just got a mention in a BBC special on "Rutland/The Rutles)

I didn't realize you had so many Ouch! videos up. Last time I looked there were only 2 or 3. Cool that you got that mention on the BBC, but he could have at least said the band's name.

Thanks! My all-time favorite Ric color. Especially when it's not too bright and not too purple-ish.  

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that a blue VW microbus was parked near the RIC factory in Santa Ana and they liked the color and copied it.

Thanks! I had a Lollar-horseshoe equipped bass for a little while, but it had adjustable polepieces. I think I've seen the stock ones before, but for some reason it struck me this time.

Yep, its a stock reissue horseshoe with the shoes removed.

I love the way the horseshoe pickups look, but they really get in my way when I play. Its either keep them on and change my whole playing style, or simply remove them. I chose the latter.

I have them wrapped up and safely tucked away in my parts toolbox.

I now have 9 Rickenbacker basses (and sold 2). None of them sound and feel the same. Otherwise I would not have 9 ehh. ;) Early, or pre- '73 bridges are very hard to get. I need sadles for one of mine, the other has a later bridge.
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: weekend warrior on September 25, 2010, 02:39:56 PM
Other than original Horseshoe bass pickups,the bridges are the holy grail and impossible to find.That being said,the bridge to get is the allparts rick 4001 bridge.They cost about 60 bucks even less on the bay at times and they have steel saddles like the earlier ones.The bridge bass itself is made from steel as well so it will not lift.All you do is cut the notch or gap tooth yourself with a dremel and viola! you have an early70's bridge. ;)
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Bert on September 25, 2010, 02:53:40 PM
Early Rick's have aluminum sadles. Are these allparts bridges better than (later) originals?

Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: weekend warrior on September 25, 2010, 03:18:42 PM
Yeah.Im looking at mine right now.It a different grade though.Its real high quality aircraft grade aluminum.It doesnt darken or tarnish.The newer ones darken and tarnish something terrible.Yeah they are.Like i said they use steel saddles so they never seaze up and tarnish. They look about as close as it gets.and they have a better bridge to baseplate fit.They dont rock back and forth.My early 70's original bridge is like that.Its a real snug fit with no rock to it.Im telling you the allparts is the way to go until you find the Grail. :)and a whole lot cheaper 8)

Post by: weekend warrior on September 25, 2010, 03:29:51 PM
Yeah,it just means that you dont have to use locktite on the bridge :mrgreen:I love that look on my old fender jazz basses too.But Rickys have always had that elegant chrome plating on there tuners and bridges.They just dont look right green and cruddy
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Bert on September 25, 2010, 03:44:11 PM

I did use that against ratling. But I somehow believe it might be the strings ratling in the sadles which are too deep now.

Post by: weekend warrior on September 25, 2010, 03:46:57 PM
Are you having troubles with the intonation on the bass?If not just make sure there is a sharp enough angle in the cut of the saddle.Mine are deep too but its dead on intonation wise and doesnt seam to rattle at all.
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Bert on September 25, 2010, 03:54:16 PM
My favorite strings (rickenbacker strings) rattle in these sadles. But to my amazement TI Jazz flats do not. I am a lazy sod. I have not checked intonation recently. I usually tune 5th position whenever I suspect intonation is not 100 %.

Post by: weekend warrior on September 25, 2010, 04:09:24 PM
You can get them at a hardware store usually.You might check to see if the saddles are cut to wide.If they are and you have just a little room left in the saddles you can use a three corner fille and cut a slight V slot in the ones that are buzzing(rattling)that should fix the problem.Or, you can buy some ricky saddles and replace the originals.That way you can play the bass and keep the originals incase you need to turn it :)
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Bert on September 25, 2010, 04:14:10 PM
Problem is modern Ricky sadles will not fit early/pre '73 sadle unit's (I am not sure of this word). The idea of a a three corner fille  is a good one!

Well,that leaves two choices.Either cut the saddles a little more or just get an allparts bridge and hold on to your original one

here's a couple of them that i made (since ric never made one like it. they're semi-hollow like a 325 guitar, with dot bound set necks );

Oh man, Bert... that's just awesome. And not a standard 4003JG among them!
Title: Re: Rickenbacker photo thread
Post by: Bert on August 12, 2017, 01:10:53 AM
The 4003S could go for a standard. But this one is an '86. It was unavailable for some time. ;-)

Beautiful collection! 

What is the 4th bass from the left?  Was that a particular model of 4003?

Down to two Rics myself. Always had a thing for jetglo - last ones standing  :vader:

Never quite got round to owning one... any one... +1 on all the above comments, Bert...
Last time I actually played one I was almost exactly 21... the day I bought my Ibanez 12 string (acoustic), courtesy of mum and dad... 37 years ago... :o

Thanx all! :-)

4th from left is a Shadow. Rickenbacker made 50 or 60 of these in '86 for a celebration of a US music shop. It is my best sounding and best playing Rick. And that is what I read from most Shadow owners.

No, I don't. But they look good against a white wall also. ;-)
