Bass of the Week: Rikkers Guitars Hollowline

Rikkers Guitars Hollowline Bass Red

Based on the the company’s Powerline model, the Rikkers Guitars Hollowline is distinguished by a chambered body that makes all the difference. “Not only do [the chambers] reduce weight significantly, they also make for a remarkably resonant and transparent tonal character,” Rikkers shares on their website.

Each bass is custom built to order with a plethora of options. Rikkers prefers set-neck construction, though neck-through and bolt-on versions can be made. It’s built with your choice of woods for the body and neck. It comes standard with an ABM-Ghost piezo system as well as an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp and pickups of your choice.

Rikkers Guitars is based in Holland, where all their basses are made by luthiers Ferdinand Rikkers, Jacco Stuitje, and Herman Mulder.
