The Seymour Duncan Ripper bass pickup is an exact recreation of the originals inside and out, from the 3 conductor lead wire, punchy ceramic magnet, and custom black cover. Restore an original or upgrade your reissue.

  1. Great work. Works Great. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2017

    I have my bass back. After years of playing my Ripper, one of the magnets finally went out. It's the first problem I have had with it since I bought it new in the mid-70's. I did some research and wanted to find someone that could reproduce the magnet and maintain the integrity of the bass. Seymour Duncan did just that. They custom made me the magnet and was shipped to me in nicely packaged box. I brought it to my guitar tech and he replaced it. The bass sounds just as good if not better than it originally did. Thanks Seymour Duncan. I will be recommending you to anyone I come into contact with. You do wonderful work.

  2. Seymour Duncan Ripper Bass Pickups 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

    I'm very happy with the set of Ripper pickups as they reproduce the sound as good as the original picksups. I have another Ripper and the sound is very similar. They look great and appear to be well made.
