    You need to remove the strings and remove some screws ...

    Rickenbackers aren't normal basses ...

    Wait until you try to adjust the intonation @#$%^&!

    As per that diagram ... I put the screws below the pickup cover or remove the pickup cover alltogether.

    Getting the pickup cover back on per the diagram is not as easy as it looks IME. I took mine back to Ric and had them do it....and then I took it off again. I'll just do the same if it needs to go on again.
     
  4. I did not something like that once with the same results as you. Now I just take my gear to the pros. I am terrible at even the smallest of things like that or even small jobs around home. Nothing seems to go right. I screw in a light bulb at home and next thing you know there is a mushroom cloud above our house. :help:

    Taking it off is no problem. Putting it back on is a royal pain.

    Lawsonman......thanks a bunch! That is a great site! Don't believe I ever truly understood the use of the Ric-o-sound. Also, the .0047 capacitor bypass is interesting...... wasn't aware my bottomend was being held back. Thanks again. Bud
