    Somebody please spare my tired hands (and slow dial-up connection) from scrolling through a bunch of pickup sites... who makes precision style bass pickups for 5 stringed basses??

    TIA!

    Not sure, maybe Fender.....

    I´d visited very recently EMG´s and Dimarzio´s sites and don´t remember seeing that kind of pups, who knows????:confused:

    I believe EMG and Bartolini do; probably most folks.

    Mr G! :) Bart still lists a P "shaped" pup for 5'rs in their
    2001 catalog. Each element has a single "blade". One
    covers B-E-A, the other D + G. Their price list shows
    four versions: 58S (deep), 58ST (brighter), 58SU (brightest),
    58TC (active), plus a mid-boost kit for the 58TC. All but
    the 58TC ($146) list for $130.

    There are several 5'r Bart soapbars that offer a P-type
    configuration of their single blade elements: BC, BD, M4, M5,
    P2, and P4. The difference being their outer dimensions.


    EMG has the "P5". Here's the info on them...
    Like Bart, EMG offers some soapbars with a P type coil
    configuration (EMG-35P and EMG-40P) -- click here.

    Thanks, notduane - Bart is a good choice, too.
