Bartolini BC5CBC string width details?

    Any pickup experts out there that can maybe help? Been searching and not finding much. On the Bartolini web site it says that the max string spacing on these pups (noted above) is 72mm at the pickup. I am trying to put new pups in a bass that at the bridge pup the string width from center to center is right at 72mm and about 73.5-74mm at the outer edges. Am I in danger of not getting all of the strings to pickup? The spacing at the neck pup is fine at about 69mm. Not wanting to drop the coin if it is not going to work. Thanks!
