    Going with 17mm spacing at the bridge. I want to go with split coil Bartolinis but they say the neck pickup has to be 64mm spacing or more. If I were to go with 70's jazz pickup spacing, would the string spacing be adequate over the neck pickup?

    I was thinking of doing the same thing as a WW Streamer and having the neck pickup moved back from the jazz neck position.

    Also looking at other possibilities for passive blade jazz style pickups like the Seymour Duncan Stack, EMG JHZ.
