    Hey guys was wondering if any of you Ric owners had any experience with this? How do they hold up compared to the actual Rickenbacker Bridges/tailpieces? Tail Lift if at all any?

    Official Rickenbacker pieces are currently out of stock and I really can't wait around any longer.

    Thanks!

    The allparts and the real Ric part can both be made to NEVER pull up by adding 2 additional screws.

    Or you can also get the Hipshot Ric replacement bridge.

    I currently have a badassII on my ric and I believe its the source of my neck problems.

    I don't think a bridge can cause neck problems.

    If the new bridge/tailpiece I bought from Ric 2 years ago lifts off again, I'll be getting one of those older "Lawsuit" Hipshots.

    Perhaps the excess mojo present in the BAII caused the neck to try to "look down" at the bridge? :confused:

    Hmmm, I guess Im wrong then, but I was told by other users awhile ago that a badass II bridge could be part of my Ric neck problems. I forgot to mention it also gives me a low output E as well(crappy bridge saddle??). I might as well just try to replace it with the original bridge anyways.

    If you do, use low tension strings. I'm a Ric guy, but the bridge/tailpiece is inferior IMO.

    Thats the problem though, i dont really wanna use low tension. Im currently using 105-45, I also detune at times to D even C. It might just be a personal preference, but I really like my 4001 to look "stock".
