    Do they offer any explanation on what the extra magnets are supposed to do? I'm not getting what the purpose is, as opposed to just using larger diameter magnets, or using a bar magnet. I'm just asking out of curiosity.

    This is from the maker

    "It is a 3 magnet per string design with the .250 AlNiCo 5 center and .195 AlNiCo 8 Flanks. This design along with the increased coil height add a Jazz bass flavor to the P giving you the best of both worlds in one pickup. You get the growl and bite of a p with the increased clarity and transient overtones of the Jazz. It is remarkable. It is a direct mount into a standard p bass route but you cannot use covers. It has mount legs on the flatwork

    The sting Ray is the first that he has done so I imagine it's the same with the p. The stingray is wired 22k. While the p is 12k
