    This set is out of a 2016 masterbuilt Warwick Dophin. Everything is in pristine condition and works perfectly. I had my tech remove them when the bass was brand new since I am endorsed by a different company. Great sounding pickups. This price is incredibly low for all of it.

    4 or 5 string? Max string spacing?

    5 string. Warwick Dolphin has standard Wawick 16.5 mm spacing.

    As long as the pickups are the correct size for the bass, there will be no string spacing issues as these pickups utilize bar magnets. :)

    Even though Warwick makes saddles with adjustable spacing they utilize two different bridge sizes that require different pickup sizes.

    So the original question about string spacing directly correlates to pickup size. The gentleman asked the right question, he could have asked for pickup size in millimeters but this will give him the right information as well.

    So what did you replace the double J with? I'm looking to replace the one in my Fortress Masterman. Choices are very limited

    How would you characterize the difference?

    The Delanos have a slightly more vintage sounding upper register. Not a big difference.
