    Even though it seems like the 130 will fit, I'm considering going with a set of La Bella Nickel Plated 29-45-65-85-105-128 XL anyway. The 29 isn't much different from the 30 on there already, and the 45, 65, 85, and 105 will match up the same. The 128 will be just a hair more than the 125. :bassist:

    An unusual P pickup configuration for sure. If we're imagining them numbered from left to right 1,2,3, and 4 I guess 1 and 3 are together and 2 and 4 which makes good sense. I just don't understand the slant. Seems like they'd slant the other direction.

    That’s right: 1+3 and 2+4 just like you said.

    There’s a common misconception about the ESP PPJ that one split coil covers the E and A strings and the other covers the D and G. But that obviously makes no sense.

    His original PPJ bass had a huge square hole cut out of it with all 4 split-coils crammed in. I assume the slant was just designed to help them fit better...

    Thanks for helping to clear that up. An interesting looking bass, for sure.

    Let my guitar buddy check out the new 5 string and he was impressed with the quality and tone. Neither one of us had ever even checked out this brand before. And that b string thing is pretty cool too.
