    Selling a pair of 5 string Nordstrand Dual Coils wired in series along with a Nordstrand 3b-5a preamp. I've only gone through 1 set of batteries with these so they have fairly limited play time.

    I had these in a 5 string BTB but recently upgraded to a Dingwall; rendering the BTB obsolete to say the least.

    When I received the pickups, one of the covers was no longer attached to the pickup. When screwed into the bass, they're on tight but I currently have a little tape holding the cover on while it's out the bass.

    Also, while the pre-amp is pre-wired to the pots/control knobs, it will need to be soldered to the input jack that came with the 3b-5a set if you're not using your own (I used the neutrik jack on my BTB).

    Looking to get $250 for these shipped/insured.

    Thanks for looking!

    Do you know the string spacing?
    Is this the standard shape or emg shape?

    I believe it's shape is similar to a Bartolini P2 pickup. The dimensions are 4.27"x1x.27" and the string spacing is 19mm.

    Also, I had to route my BTB's control knobs just a mm or two to fit the 3b-5a controls in. I'll take some measurements in a few hours to see what the differences are.

    That's a smoking-hot deal on the combo! If I had a BTB or a 55-01, this would be going into it, for sure.

    Thanks TB!
