    Hi everyone,

    I have a pair of Villex pickups. As the title imply, they're 5 strings pickups in a shell the size of Bartolini's P4 (4.65 x 1.25 inches). The shell is made out of ebony. The guy who sold them to me didn't say how wide the magnets were... they were meant for a 7 string... I really can't use them. I'll let the pair go for $125 US + shipping.

    The Barts are also P4. They came out of a GT7 I'm modifying. They sound great, but there not what I'm looking for. In fact, I bought the Villex just for that... anyways, I'd like to get about $100 US + shipping. these would work great for a 5, 6 or 7 string bass.

    take care
    PL

    the preamp is the standard mightymite 2 band pre. It's not a bad preamp per say, but it definitely isn't hi end. I'm not a big fan of active electronic... I prefer the simplicity of the volume-volume-tone setup. if you're still interested, i'd say 30 + shipping for the pre.

    I'll pass on the pre. it won't fit a Jazz bass. I'm mainly looking for a Bart NTBT
