Pick of the Ricks is proud to be the exclusive dealer for the Treble Bezel.
It is the perfect solution for owners of the Rickenbacker 4001 and 4003 series who prefer to play with the Treble pickup cover off.
The treble bezel eliminates the sharp edges and the unattractive pickup cavity that removal of the pickup cover reveals.
These are injection molded, textured ABS plastic and chrome plated. The chrome is REAL metal chrome plating for the ultimate in looks and durability.
The factory pickup height adjustment feature remains unchanged.
Designed and made in the U.S.A.
These are hand finished, dated and numbered.
Available in 3 styles:

I was a little nervous to purchase this but then i gave it a shot and i always feel in good hands from Chris! I got the "Cove" edition and it's the best investment i can put on my 4003. Simple installation as well. Thanks, Chris!

I reluctantly removed the original overhead pup cover and replaced it with the chrome deluxe treble bezel cover. I love the look of the 4003 with the original cover in place but it makes (plectrum) picking style difficult as it's in the way and exactly where I love to pluck the strings. This deluxe cover fills the hole and also allows my pinky finger a hook to hang onto (if installed the opposite end to a finger player's thumb rest) while heavy picking directly over the pup. Great idea.

Just received and installed the treble bezel (chrome plated with cove) . Shipment was quick. Easy to set up, looks great! It's made of what seems to be a good quality and durable plastic , plated by a shiny chrome layer. Thanks!

At last, no more cut fingers on the sharp edges of the pickup mounting bracket. The treble bezel looks like it's supposed to be there. Not being able to pluck the strings in the area above the bridge p/u was like having an itch you can't scratch. Wide open now and loving it!!!

The original pickup cover is very awkwardly placed. This was a great solution for the space left around the pickup after removing the cover. Now we'll see how it holds up to serious use.

Unfortunately I own a Rick copy instead of the real deal. Ik bought this bezel and fitted it to my needs. Solid material and if you are carefull it's easy to make it fit without destroying it. Thanks Chris for the fast delivery and the nice personal touch in the bill.

It certainly adds value to my 4003 just because that awful black space is now filled with chrome. The cove does not provide the purchase for my thumb I had hoped. If I had it to do over I might go for the raised tab version.

Exactly what was needed to cover the gaping hole left with pickup cover removed, plus with it being chromed, it looks great! Installing one of these is the right move for anyone with their pickup cover removed.

It is one of those things that should have come decades ago with regard to necessity, but it's never too late as it looks at home on any Ric with a traditional bridge pickup. I have one on both of my 4003s! Awesome product!

I bought the model with the recessed 'cove' thumb rest, to replace the standard one the bass came with. The cove is a big improvement over the standard one and personally I don't think the raised 'deluxe' version would be as comfortable, as your hand is too far above the strings.
