    Just checked - mine is 65mm G, 68mm E. Why do you ask, just out of interest?

    Just FYI... I'd suggest measuring the distance from the pups to the 12th fret, as the bridge saddle distance may vary depending upon whether the bass is properly intonated or not.

    no im making it a skirt....

    no seriously i just wundered my current bass has a MM pup in it n i wunder if the tension on the strings would be the same if the 65mm is the same, so if the pickup is too close to the bridge i dont enjoy the feel, but when its more around a jazz pup neck i prefer it can make do with a jazz neck.

    if tht makes any sense.

    To alter the tension you might also want to try different waxes. Stay away from carnuba.
