    I have a pair of Bartolini pickups I bought from somebody here a while ago, and I don't need them, so I'd like to sell them, but I don't know much about them, so can anybody tell me anything? (holy run-on sentence!) They are 5 string pickups, marked 85p25m-t and 78p25m-b, and I think they were originally on a Dingwall. I'm just looking for enough information that I can list them honestly in the classifieds.

    The P2 refers to the size and shape model...Check out www.bartolini.net
    85 and 78 are probably the string to string mm coverage maximum.
    -t is treble or bridge pickup and -b is the neck or bass pickup
    p is probably pbass type magnet layout
    25m is probably the code for Dingwall custom model order
    I hope this is helpful
