Specially designed as a direct replacement for standard Rickenbacker® 4001/4003 bass guitars or as an upgrade for Chickenbacker basses the SlimJim® low-profile surround is made of stainless steel and acrylic and will allow you to re-use your existing pickup and caddy. At under 4mm high the SlimJim®lets you keep that classic look without the obstruction of a raised metal surround.
**Now available with integrated thumb-rest!**
The kit is supplied with the four small screws needed to fit directly onto your Rickenbacker without the need to drill any holes. Fitment to non-Rickenbacker models may require holes to be drilled or the pickup cavity to be enlarged.
The size and shape of the stainless surround is identical to that of a standard Rickenbacker surround so you can easily switch without having to alter your bass or drill additional holes.
PLEASE NOTE – The new treble cover sits on top of the clear acrylic part of the SlimJim. It is therefore static and does NOT move up and down if you adjust the pickup height.It will fit all previously sold SlimJim surrounds.
