Hello all, I need advice! I saved and ordered a new Rickenbacker 4001 in 79. I was dissapointed in the sound from the start so it was seldom played. I found the bass wonderful to play but somewhat dead sounding compared to my old Stingray and EMG equipt Precision. I would like to put some new electronics in it and so far I only have found a direct fit from Bartolini. I think they are passive pickups and they also have preamp otions. It looks like 450.oo dollars should do it and is likely reversable. I am willing to pay the bucks but do not want to be dissapointed. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
