Features
The Rickenbacker Electric Bass - Second Edition by : Paul D. Boyer


With the introduction of the two-pickup 4001 model in 1961; the Rickenbacker bass became a phenomenon. The Beatles's use of Rickenbacker instruments was pivotal: teen groups everywhere wanted to have the same instruments the Beatles used so they could achieve the “right” sound. With its ultra-modern design that made the classic Fender precision bass look downright old-fashioned; the Rick quickly became a darling of progressive bands that loved its look as much as its different sound.

The Rickenbacker Electric Bass: 50 Years as Rock's Bottom is the first book to trace the history of the iconic guitar; from its protoypes through its explosion of popularity in such bands as the Beatles; Yes; Deep Purple; and Motörhead; to name but a few. Lavishly illustrated with archival shots; this is a must-have book not only for anyone who plays the Rick but also for anyone who plays the bass guitar. This second edition features 16 bonus pages with up-to-date information on Rickenbacker's latest electric bass models; more photo coverage of artists playing Ricks; and some eye-popping custom-built iterations of the classic Rickenbacker electric bass.
