    I got these recently with an SR5006 and would absolutely love to keep them, but I need to pay off the debt incurred from the bass :bag:

    These Jazz Bar pickups are essentially Nordstrand's amazing single-coil NJ pickups but in a Bartolini P4 bar-type shape. According to Carrey, NJ/Jazz Bars offer the snap and grind many bassist look for in a good jazz bass. These were custom ordered to fit an Ibanez SR5006 (but will also fit SR3006e and SR4006) with its usual tighter string spacing, so they are not the same size as a typical P4. They were installed and lightly used, but are in fantastic shape with plenty of lead line left. Please, also note that these were made without a plastic casing because of the smaller measurement needed (or at least this was the case 3 years ago, when ordered).

    Measurements are as follows:
    Neck lead - 7 1/2"
    Bridge lead - 5 1/2"
    W×L×D - 1 1/8 x 4 7/16 x 3/4 in. (28.6 x 112.7 x19 mm)

    Not sure what to tell you as I can't find MK1 pickup specs anywhere. I'd assume so, but if not they would most likely be smaller than the route (fitting) rather than too big. In other words, you'd have to measure your pups to make a final decision. Sorry

    Ok, just did some more research and found on Bartolini's site that SR506 may be upgraded with MK6CBC which measure ~107.6 × 33.7mm. Mine are 5mm longer and narrower which would require some routing on an SR506 yet still leave gaps at the sides.

    As a side note, you could consider having matching wood casings made for the pickups to gracefully fill the gaps. The pickups are already $100 under price...just saying :thumbsup:
