I wanted to add the Rickenbacker sound to my stable but had 2 issues: 1. Needed a 5 string 2. Can't really afford a Rickenbacker right now. So, I took a Squier Affinity Jazz V neck and built my own design of a body around it out of Northern White Ash. It's chambered to reduce weight. Around 9 lbs. I just got it wired up yesterday and right now it's just both pickups (Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder Jazz per Ric5's suggestion) wired straight to the jack. The pickups are in as near to Rickenbacker position as I could and adjusted to a 34" string length. No finish on the body and still some shaping to do. Pictures and sound clip for your amusement. Those of you who have Rickenbackers let me know how close I am to the sound.
