The 4001 and 4003 player’s dilemma…you want to remove the pickup cover so you can play normally, but you’re left with a gaping, sharp hole. The Bridge Pickup Plate was designed to replace the original metal plate with a smooth plastic plate that matches your pickguard. With the optional 1/4″ Clear Pickup Guard, the pickup is protected.
We recommend ordering both pieces (RPUP & RPUG) for the best look and maximum protection. The Bridge Pickup Plate can also be used by itself
There are two versions available. Version 1 is the standard one that fits most of the 4000 series. Version 2 is about 1/8″ narrower. Versions for the 4003 S/5 and Seymour Duncan Rickenbacker pickups are also available. Print out the template below and compare to your metal mounting ring.
