    Hmm...they're definitely BRIGHTER and less compressed than the custom wound Barts we typically use on the Custom/Signature lines. :)

    Bartolini has one of the most confusing lines of products ever but I believe Deep Tone, Bright Tone, and Classic Bass are 3 different things. I'd stick with the CB's.

    I think you are confused with something. There are no bright and deep for the CB models. Roscoe uses a 6 string shell for both 5 string and 6 string bass models if were talking soapbars.

    The model would be P46CBC.

    I recommend buying the pickups direct from Roscoe. Their prices are right on the money and you know what your getting is the correct stuff.

    Peace

    Good point, and I should have made it - the only way to get a CB that fits our 5 string pickup rout is to get one from us, because they custom-make those shells just for us. Sorry, didn't even think of that - nice catch Michael! :)

    I agree. They make some great products, but they sure don't make it easy to fgure out what's what.
