Rickenbacker electric upright bass (1935), Amplifier (mid 1930s), Console piano, Museum of Making Music

"The Rickenbacker Bass, 1935. Rickenbacker's George Beauchamp thought acoustic sound chambers were unnecessary. This upright magnetic horseshoe up is split into two section to accommodate the curvature of the fingerboard. In order for the pickup to function properly, the gut strings are wrapped with a fine ferrous or steel wire, that can be magnetized when strings pass between the magnet and the coils."
