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.
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.
