Baytone Rickenbacker Style R4001 electric bass Bridge Pickup J003
This is one, Bridgepickup for the R4001/3 type bass. They are designed to be used in conjunction with our construction plans for that instrument or as a replacement Alnico set for a Rickenbacker version. See Installation notes wiring-our-pickups.html
The Bobbins are made from 3 mm Thick Polished Perspex and feature Alnico 5 Magnets made in a similar way to Fenders originals.
There are brass inserts for M3 bolts on the bridge pickup (bolts provided) 44 awg wire, enamel coated.
These pickups are totally bespoke and far less expensive than the genuine Rikki ones.
They also sound quite beautiful, being scatter wound with less tension.
I make them in my home workshops, one at a time
Bridge is around 12k and wax potted.
They are supplied Boxed and well packed.
They have been tested before packing and are fully guaranteed.
Genuine Hand built Artisan Pickup Made in the UK.

Please note there is a 3 to 5 working day processing time from order to dispatch.
Transducers, made in our workshop at Cayton Village, near
Scarborough by the beautiful North Yorkshire coast in England.
The bobbins or armatures are cut, milled, drilled and filed from raw sheet materials including Brass, Perspex, Bright Steel and Plastic, with details such as contrasting binding being hand applied.
They are copper foil shielded before being assembled and lacquered.
We have our own designed and built winding machine with electronic counter and speed control for precise calibration.
This is used to apply the vintage enamel coated wire, slowly and with maximum diversity-in other words they are scatter wound as randomly as possible at only medium tension.
This process endows our pickups with both unique character and rich harmonic complexity as well as a very open sound quality.
The Alnico magnets and lead out wires are applied before wrapping with a very open weave cloth tape. They are wax potted with this first layer of wrap applied. This, along with our unique lead out routing, makes a virtually indestructible coil under normal handling.
Depending upon the model, extra shielding is applied and a final tape wrap.
I test EVERY pickup before despatch to ensure every one works and you do not receive a dead pickup.
They are issued with a 1 year limited warranty as outlined below.
I can make pickups to spec/colour, please contact me.

"Excellent seller, quality item great communication recommended seller"
Am very happy with the full, fat, creamy, overdriven, jazzy sound!

I ordered a 8.0 K CC pickup in ivory from you last week.
Safely arrived and now installed.
It's a beauty! I am one very happy man!
The tone is everything I hoped for and more
Best wishes for the future - long may you remain in business.

Kevin Brown Said about the CR2 Christian style pickup
"That pickup truly is remarkable and actually very similar to the ricky fry pans, bigsby and clinesminth in sound, very steely.
Thats a marketable property to have in a 'sound'
They have steel/alloy components to magnify sustain, but yours does it at a fraction of the cost."
