    Not good at all with measurements, and surely not shame to admit it. Change out my Nordys Fat Stacks, to a radius style Bartolini Pickup set. But I don't understand measurements. The Fat Stacks are 4.25" by 1.25" or 3.9" by 1.25 The Bartolini Pickups run at 4.5 x 1.9 are these any where close to being the same to one another

    No. they're all completely different. I'm not sure what's hard to understand. Measure your pickups and find those that fit. Bartolini pickups can be found in many different sizes.

    Fat Stacks typically come in Bartolini sizes.

    The four string versions are around 4" x 1.25"
    The Bartolini size would be BC

    The five string versions are around 4.25" x 1.25".
    The Bartolini size would be P2

    Fat Stacks also come in EMG sizes which are considerably wider. There aren't Bartolini pickups to fit those sizes.
  4. Some people seem to forget the "b" letter in Talkbass sometimes.

    Mostly correct,

    All Nordstrand bass pickups, beside MM and P, can be ordered in either Bartolini or EMG size

    Bartolini has the M shape/size which is the EMG equivalent
