Joe Barden R4000 for Ric style basses Models 4001/4003 (Bass not included)

The R4000 Style Bass pickups for Rickenbacker® 4001/4003 series basses provides a major improvement over stock and even most replacement pickups. Like all JBE pickups, these pickups solve the most common problem of. noise and hum that plauges RIC™ bassists and often relegated this iconic instrument as prizes within the arsenals of many RIC™ bass enthusiasts. The R4000 Style pickups are so quiet you may even question if they are on, allowing you to use your RIC™ bass on more gigs and recording sessions without fear of noise.

But the benefits do not stop with noise-free and hum-free performance. Other major benefits include:

  • Retention of the classic RIK™ vibe and tone.
  • An expanded tonal palate that allows this iconic instrument to be used for a broader variety of musical styles.
  • Powerful operation with a highly articulate response and feel that that lifts your RIC™ out of the mix.
  • Compliment to the original character of your RIC™ bass by allowing reuse of RIC™ pickup hardware for drop in installation without modification to your RIC™.
  • Simple 2-wire installation.
  • Above all, the R4000s are JBE pickups renowned for their high fidelity sound and performance.

Wiring diagrams and mounting hardware are provided to facilitate installation.
