    I'm trying to find out if the Bartolini 59j's will fit in my bass. Their website has dimensions for the 9j's (standard 4 string size) and 57j's (fender 5 string size) but not the 59j's. If you have these pups could you let me know the lenght and width and feel free to give my some opinions on how they sound! thanks
     
  2. The neck pickup is 3 9/16 long and the screw centers are 1 1/2 . This means you will have a 1/4 " gap at the ends. also will have to route out some pickguard so the narrower screw centers will fit

    The bridge pickup is 3 5/8" long and screw centers are 1 17/32. a little wood routing here.

    They sound great and humm free even when soloed
