The Bartolini 6RT is a Rickenbacker® 4001 replacement pickup intended for the neck position. The full range split coil design features a deep tone.
The 6RT is part of the "original series" bass pickups with passive designs. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
Bartolini pickups are precision magnetic transducers designed and manufactured to bring out the fullest response from electric guitars and basses. Each pickup is hand assembled from selected materials and carefully tested for output level, square wave response, hum level and microphonics. All Bartolini pickups carry a one year warranty for defects in workmanship or materials.
