Anyone make a split coil that fits in a single coil route?

    I have a 51 P body and I want to put a split coil P pickup in it but it's already routed for a single coil P. I know some companies make split coil J's... but does anyone make one in a P?

    ^^^^ Ah, it was Fralin I was thinking of, not Nordstrand, sorry.

    Doesn't Lindy Fralin do this as well? Or does he only do single coil jazz pups in this manner?

    The bobbin looks fine to me.
     
  10. What's wrong with that?

    Well I don't care what the bobbin looks like if the thing sounds good, but when you say "excuse the quality of this pickup" that is pretty broad.

    The Fralin pickup is awesome and totally worth the price. I've played a 51 for a long time and I put one in a year ago. It's now one of my best sounding basses.
