A long desired addition to my 1972 Rick Fireglo 4001 is on it's way to me from Florida.
Alembic "Rick" Activator System!
I got them for $500.00
I sold my original pickups and many extras to pay for them.
I am so stoked!

Alembic PUPs increase the sonic value of your instrument by a squillion percent.
I was blown away when I added active Alembic PUPs to my Jazz Bass.
Let us know your thoughts when you install and try them out.

Wow - nice score! I've been wanting a set of these on and off for years now. I've got Activators in my Fender Telecaster Bass and love them. I guess with me and Rics I find that I am happy with the sound of stock Ric pickups so it's not as burning a desire as it once was, but it's still at the back of my mind.
Anyway, I second slawie - looking forward to a report! I bet you will love them!

Have them on a Ric. You will be really pleased.
For a 72 4001? Very cool.
Also like that the pickguard isn't cut. It'll make battery changes a little tougher (you'll have to take the whole piece off), but the split never looks quite right to me.
