Fast fret wear was a common complaint for many years, and Rickenbacker sought to address the issue. The pickups are also higher in output, and the bridge pickup, a so-called “horseshoe” pickup, was entirely remodelled, featuring a more conventional design, although the “horseshoe” is still part of the construction, albeit removable. More recent models also feature a push-pull switch on one of the tone knobs, which diminishes the output of the pickups, to more closely resemble the original tone.
Other features remained similar to its forebear. Rickenbacker has in recent years also produced a five-string model, featuring a more conventional bridge system, smaller Schaller machine heads and distinctive, asymmetrical pickups. It retains the Rickenbacker’s signature 33″ scale length, an unusual design for a five-string instrument.
