I've just installed some barts in my Carvin XB75. They sound great but I have one problem. The barts are taller than the stock carvin P series pickups and they are very close to the strings ( a little more than 1/8"). Bart's website says to leave at least 1/4" but I've turned the preamp all the way down and I do plan on bring the bass to a local luthier to rout out the existing pickup slots in the future so I can lower them further. Do you think there is any harm in playing the bass as is right now?
