    Does anyone know offhand if the dimensions of these pups are compatible with an Ibanez BTB405 (we're talking one of the earlier models - 2001 to be precise)?

    Thanks in advance for any input! :)

    The only one that are close and would work is the P2:

    108x32mm

    You'll have a little gap of 3mm at each end.

    M

    Maurilio-

    To your knowledge, are there any other Nordy pups that would be compatible?

    Thanks!

    not without routing the bass.
    I did install P2s in a couple of similar basses with pretty decent result (the gap isn't a big deal)

    Maurilio, you were right. Big Splits are in (instead of the dual coils) and sound great! :)
