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.
The Treble Bezels are CNC machined out of high strength black ABS plastic. They are top coated with a soft touch clear urethane .
This clear top coat resist scratches,stains and fingerprints.
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 to fit either 4003 or 4001:
Note: Some early 4003 Rickenbackers had the straight 4001 style chrome surround without the step down.Make sure you specify what style chrome surround is on your bass when placing your order.
If you have the Straight style chrome surround you'll need to order a 4001 series Treble Bezel.

I pick play, and now not only does my hand not go into the pu cavity, but with the deluxe shelf on bottom I've got a place to hook my pinky finger. Part fits snugly and straight. Ace.

Works as advertised. Love it.
It would probably be a good idea to take notice of your thumb position while playing your bass before ordering. I noticed that my thumb tended to hover over the cavity on the left side of the pickup. So I bought the "Cove" model, with the little well on the left side.

Since I bought my first 4001 in 1977 and now my latest 4003, this ingenious design literally fills in the blank! I removed the treble pickup cover on my original 4001 because I hated having to play around it. The only problem was my thumb would always sink into the pickup chamber. As a finger player, I bought the cove deluxe bezel. So much easier to maneuver and play off different strings and not have to worry about tearing my thumb up by yanking it out of the whole...

Like many before I wanted to remove the pickup cover from my new 4003 Jetglo. This covered it beautifully and added a flat finish to the guitar.
My guitar tech loved it and so do I

Fast delivery, easy installation, and it does everything I'd hoped for. If you have a Ric and are not thrilled with the bridge pickup cover then this is the product for you.

Easy to install. Looks like the bass came this way. I honestly couldn't be happier. Pick of the Ricks had great communication and shipped right away. You seriously won't be disappointed.

This addition adds the stability needed on the Rick. Keeps me playing comfortably at the bridge pu. Pick guard good for stability at neck pu. THIS PRODUCT COMPLETED MY RICK!

I was used to playing with my thumb on a humbucker, this is as close as I can come to that on a Rick!
Better than other thumbrest products for me.

The good: Fit and finish are perfect, installation is easy and it gives the bass (a 1974 4001) a "complete" look.
The not-as-good: Price is really high for what it is — a piece of shiny plastic. However, I understand that this is not a high-volume product and so economies of scale don't apply.
Also, I really would have preferred a black bezel, but was shipped a chrome one. (There was no option to choose the colour.) Sending it back and waiting to see if I could get a black one would have been more time and effort and postage than I wanted to put out, though.
All that said, I heartily recommend this product. Just ask about colour when you order!

I purchased the cove style for both of my rics... I play finger-style and this works perfectly. My thumb naturally goes to the cove and gives a great anchor. A must have for finger style players!!
