Hi all,

I'm relatively new here and I'm looking into picking up my first Rickenbacker bass after many years of ogling. I'm looking into getting a 4001v63. It appears to be in pretty good shape, but it is missing the covers for the horseshoe pickup. Now I know the covers do affect the way that particular pickup sounds, so I would theoretically like to replace the covers. Is that a possibility? Or will I need a completely new horseshoe pickup? I've searched around for replacement horseshoe covers but I haven't found any yet.

Any information on this matter would be very helpful. Thanks!

For a HorseShoe cover - maybe you might try posting on the "wanted" and hunting through the "for sale" sections of the Marketplace Forum over at the Rick Resource Forum (RRF). These items come up occasionally on the RRF or some Forum member has one sitting in the corner of their parts drawer, etc.

Good luck

Wow, I can't believe someone took the shoes of the horsey, I used to own two v63s and I found that horseshoe pickup to be a monster, tonewise.... I would think it would lose something if it were to lose its horseshoes... :ugeek:
