How do you pronounce the word. rickenBACKer, or rickenBACHer. The American way, or the german way?

Any truth to relation with Eddie R. the WWI flying ace?

Thanks

I use "RickenBACKer" because one of my childhood friends had that name and that's how he said it. No, he didn't play guitar -- or any instrument from what I remember.

BACH

even though the companies in America, it is a German name, nonetheless.

It like pronouncing the italian name Puglia (pronounced pool-ya), as pug-lia.

RickenBACKer. That's how the company says it. I know RickenBACHer is the correct German pronunciation, but I don't use the correct French pronunciation for New Orleans, nor the correct Spanish pronunciation for San Francisco.

Just for the record, Adolph Rickenbacher (Rickenbacker) was Swiss.

RickenBACKer. I don't use the correct French pronunciation for New Orleans,


A bit off topic but down in this region I either say "Nawlin's" or "NOLA".
