Specially designed as a direct replacement for standard Rickenbacker® 4001/4003 bass guitars or as an upgrade for Chickenbacker basses the SlimJim® HS 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.
PLEASE NOTE – all mounting holes and caddy holes are located in identical positions to the 4001/4003 bass model. This surround is designed to give the appearance of a Horseshoe surround but it is not meant to be a direct replacement for an original RIC Horseshoe surround as the mount holes may be in different positions.
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 overall size of the stainless surround is 148mm x 85mm.
