1976 Rickenbacker Pickup Replacement
Pickups by Sergio Silva
I set this page up to document the installation of new pickups made by Sergo Silva (see http://www.rickresource.com/forum/ Winding up With the Best discussion). Man they sound great, I forgot just how good this old bass was. It now has the true Rickenbacker sound. I took some pictures of the bass and the new pickups and posted them below.
I also made a sound clip where I put the tone knobs at mid position and the volume all the way for both pickups. I put the switch in treble position and played a riff, moved to bass position and played the same riff and then to the mid position and played again. Keep in mind that bass is not my main instrument so please ignore the flubs.
