What size routes do you have?
The bass isn't routed yet. It's currently not even in the process of being built. I want all my ducks in a row before I start this. I'm not one for last minute surprises on something I'm spending this much on. If they're up there on Friday I'll probably grab them, but I'm also going to need 5 string pups.

PS - I have a 2-Band MEC Active preamp for sale ($65 bucks) if your interested.
I'm definitely interested because i haven't even priced out a pre-amp. I'm going to have to get that routed by a luthier. They don't offer it on the body i'm looking into.
My concern about the routing/pickup match, is that on the warmoth builder site that I've been playing with, they say the 5 string pups are 4" Neck, 4 1/8" bridge. I found some specs on the MEC and they stated it as 19mmx91mm & 19mm x 95mm. I converted it the best I could, and 91mm = (roughly) 3.6", and 95 = (roughly) 3.75. i'm worried that these 4 and 4 1/8 routes will be way to big. If you're positive about them fitting, I'll listen. Not much else to go on, but I've also considered buying the body and the pickups and having someone here route it to guarantee it fits the way it should.
