    mk1 = "make in Korea". These pickups are licensed to use the Bartolini name for import basses, they are not made by Bartolini. You will not find their specs on the Bartolini site.

    Yes the dimension for Bartolini MK1 pickups is in their web site at
    www.bartolini.net

    and the dimension is
    1.33 in X 4.25 in
    or
    34mm X 108mm
    They are dual coil humbucker and I just checked their web site
    I checked Seymour and they don't have pickups the same size

    EMG 40 DC is
    39mmX104mm

    So the routering won't affect the tone but the pickup will
    because EMG 40DC is an active pickup. Not the same texture of sound at all.
    I hope it helped
