Hey there, I am a long time reader and this is my first post! I am amazed by the knowledge of this community and I profited a lot already just by reading. I really hope I posted this in the right corner. I am building my first bass from scratch for myself right now. It' a 6-string fretless bass with a lined ebony fretboard, ovangkol bolt on neck and a solid maple body. So a lot like the Warwick Streamer LX. Until yesterday I was sure I'm going for the Delano SBC 6 Pickups. I still think this would be a great choice but now I kinda got hooked by the idea of using the Dingwall FD3Ns. The Bass is supposed to become a rather clear/bright fretless. I believe that the Dingwalls are reverse P Coils. I am planning to slightly slant the pickups like in a warwick thumb 6-string (which are also reverse P) and the string spacing will be 16.5 mm and not 18 mm as the FD3N are made for. I was hoping to get some advice if the coils would still be able to line up with the strings in a 16.5 spacing. I assume that this should work in theory if I place them accordingly so that the coils split in the right spot. Some sort of technical drawing of the pickups and where the coils sit would have been a great help but I wasn't able to find one in the internet. My plan until now was the Delano SBC6 which would be safer as these are two full rails. But somehow I cannot let lose of the idea with the FD3N. Do you have an opinion about the differences in sound this would make? Both pickups seem to be rather on the modern clear/bright side. And another question that came up ... Is the FD3N actually comfortable as a thumb rest as it is rounded? Thank you a lot in advance for your time if you have any information or advice on this. Have a great day!
