Rickenbacker 425 or Rickenbacker 1000 wiring diagram

Postby (blaine63) » Wed Sep 11, 2019 8:06 pm

Looking for a wiring diagram for a 425 or 1000 (one pickup, volume control, tone control and tone selector switch). I can't decipher the schematic on the Rickenbacker website. I need something a little simpler.

Thanks.

They have PDF's on the Rickenbacker website.

Thanks but I can't decipher the schematics on their site. Looking for a diagram.

I looked at it earlier but my ability to read schematics abandoned me after I separated from the Air Force.

Think of it as a roadmap. Rhe diagrams on the RIC site are quite simple and straightforward to understand compared to, say, a schematic of just about anything else.

Alan Pachter here in Northern Virginia did a good job rewiring my 425. Email me and I can put you in touch.

I have a Ryder 1000 with the same circuit but no picture of the wiring, sorry. (The other single pickup Rickenbacker I have, my Model 4000 FL bass doesn't have the tone/selector part of the circuit, just volume and treble controls.)

Maybe we can walk you through the wiring diagram one step at a time?
