    Excellent condition single coil set w/ only some light scuffing/scratching to the shells by the outer strings that was difficult to photograph.

    8% Overwind gives you a bit more mids and output, but a tad less highs. Personally, I found these to give a perfect texture- nice and throaty, w/ a "GRR GRR" growl, but a nicely rounded top end w/ good bark and bite, not compressed or abruptly "cut-off." Great for fingerstyle w/ '70s spacing! And the raised A+D poles virtually eliminate any volume discrepancies between strings on tight (7.25"-10") radius fingerboards.

    Neck leads are 9" long, bridge + is 9", - is 8".

    Asking [DEL]$140[/DEL]$125 shipped ConUS, PayPal'd; but I'm always willing to hear offers- via PM please.

    How wide is "70's spacing"?

    The pickups are standard Fender size, 1 short/ 1 long; my comment referred to playing basses w/ '70s p/up spacing, i.e., the bridge p/up ~3/8"-1/2" closer to the bridge. The overwind gives a nice driving tone that accentuates the mids w/o the burp while taming the harshness of the high end. IME, IMO, YRMV, etc., etc.
