    I don't think that the MK-1 is a pickup that is sold through retail outlets... you may have to contact Cort or maybe if you contacted Bartolini aside from looking at the website? Also, have you thought about replacing the pup with a regular Bart pickup?

    I don't think they make an American made pickup with the same dimensions as the MK-1. If they do it is not listed on their web page.

    Yeah, the size of my MK-1's on my lakland 55-01 doesn't really match up with the barts either... does another company make some pickups that would match up with your size better?

    I've never heard of a pickup just dying. Is that a regular thing? Especially considering the Cort Curbows didn't come with Bart pups until a year or two ago it's hard to imagine such a new pickup failing so quickly. Have you checked the battery?

    I had one of the MK-1 pups on my Lakland Skyline 55-01 go bad on me... sent it back to lakland and they swapped out the pups in no time! Maybe you should see if there is a warrantee on the bass, a factory service center nearby? Contact Cort to see about them fixing it...
