How about this hippie Ric

Walker does some cool stuff and gets a killer, classic Ric tone.

What kind of pickup is in the bridge position? Is that what the reissue horseshoe pickups look like? It doesn't look like a regular highgain... (I'm trying to embrace my Rickenignorance here!)

It's the stock horseshoe pickup with the horseshoes removed.  I had an old '88 that I bought with them removed but they were in the case thankfully!

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.

Nice! Can I have one of the original bridges? Or at least the sadles?
