    I wanted to try a set of those on a bass I was making. However I noticed on the 'net that their string spacing is under 2" rather than the normal 2 1/4" Fender style spacing. This would make it hard to locate a bridge with narrow enough spacing. It would also make the outer strings sit pretty far in from the edge of the fretboard (on a fender size neck). I think they were designed to fit on more of a Gibson style bass like a EB-3 or a Les Paul type Bass.
    Too bad they did'nt make them in wider spacing. I have their Goldtone pickups on my DeArmond S73 guitar and they are great.
