    I know Bartolini doesn't offer these in white but I sprayed and clear coated them for my 5501 Lakland.
    They are an underrated pickup IMHO.
    $45 shipped conus

  5. So these are the US made Barts? Not the Korean mk1s?

    They're the stock pickups from a Korean made Lakland 5501 so they were not US made.

    Actually, the MK1s are good, IMO. It's the house-brand preamps typically paired with these that cause basses to sound not as inspired.

    Agreed, I had these paired with a Demeter preamp and it killed.

    I had it paired with a Bartolini USA preamp and it killed it. In fact, I just picked up some more MK1s last week for an upcoming project. They're quite good...designed by Bartolini USA, but manufactured in S. Korea.
