    Well, probabaly a noob question, but...
    Are there any 6-str. basses with P-style pickups in existence? :confused: And if it is so, how is the p.u. split? 2/2/2, or 3/3? If anyoe can provide a pic, it would be nice...

    There's a couple Carl Thompsons with 6 string P pups i'm sure.. Don't have exact pics though, you'll have to look for yourself, sorry.

    Bartolini makes them

    u can buy Split Coils in J/MM/SB configuration. will probably yield very similar results.

    u can go to the extreme and have them custom wound for you.

    i believe there is a Custom Made Benavente bass that is 6strings (or more with Pstyle pups on their website as well.
