Howdy,

This is for future refrence.
If I or someone else were to purchase a Genuine Rickenbacker without the TRC at a discount, would it be possible to ship the guitar to Rickenbacker for authentication and have the cover replaced? Again, this is for refrence only. Just want to know.

Steve

Ric has stated that they will only "replace" damaged TRCs, so I believe the answer is "no".

To get a new TRC from Rickenbacker, you'll have to send in at least half of a genuine RIC TRC and there is a charge to make the exchange. You can also search to open market for truss rod covers up for sale but be prepared to pay the price because they are selling for some big numbers.

You have to turn in at least half of a genuine TRC, because RIC has no way of knowing where the TRC from the instrument you have is.
