    Modifying an older fretless mexi jazz with some batolini's for warmth, then it's a badass 2 bridge, new nut and I should have her where I want her. first question, since the mexi pups are the same size and I must mod to accomidate barts, does the longer of the barts go in the bridge position or neck?

    Q: why not order two Barts of the proper length to begin with?

    If you must use a traditional J/J set, the longer one is wound to be installed nearest the bridge.

    All the best,
