    These 6 string dual coil bass pickups are in a Bartolini P4 size / shaped housing and feature gorgeous bubinga covers. They're essentially this model with a couple differences: FRS Dual Coil

    The differences being that these use single, large diameter magnet poles (like a StingRay) rather than pairs of smaller diameter magnet poles (like traditional Jazz bass). These can be used in parallel or single coil mode, and the bridge position one can be used in series as well.

    They were a test set made specifically for me to try out a feature set not yet fully locked down, and as such there ended up being one anomaly with the neck pickup - it doesn't seem to have a normally functioning series wiring mode, but both can be used in single coil (outside coil) or parallel mode. The bridge pickup can also be used in series. When the neck is switched to series, only the single coil signal is output.

    They are truly beautiful pickups that have only been installed once and played on for a very short amount of time. It would be great to see someone get more use out of them than I have. Due to the large magnet poles, they should be able to accommodate string spacing from 16.5mm to 18.5mm or so. Maybe even a full 19. They are internally shielded. If you configure a set on the site linked to above, you'll see the cost per pair of these is normally $490.
