    Hi all,

    After some searching, I'm coming up short on a list of 5-string P pickup dimensions. I want to replace my Aguilar P pup because im not a fan, and I was disappointed to learn that the Bartolini is shorter and would look awful in the Aggie gap. Here's what I have so far, and anyone else that can add sizes, please do! I guess I'll be off to the manufacturer's sites, too.


    Aguilar - 2.8in x 1.080in., each split P the same size. 2.8in is not including the tabs.

    Bartolini - 2.2in. x 1.080in., each split P the same size. 2.2 not including tabs.

    Nordstrand looks like a match.

    Thanks for the response, @Eric Moesle. Nordstrand is close to Bartolini in size; no where close to Aguilar, according to their site.

    Delano is the same size as Barts. Looks like Aguilar is the odd man out with their own proprietary size.

    I had Nordstrand build me a custom NP5 with two large covers to replace the Aguilar that came in my Keith. That’s the only option I’m aware of. Since then, I’ve found that I slightly prefer their NP5V and have been thinking about having Nordy make me another custom pickup, but I don’t want to waste the NP5 - shoot me a message if your interested in the pickup! 351EAC65-7B5F-4E77-A642-23D394821B7A.jpeg

    That looks to be a great looking bass! Is the bridge pickup a big single or big split?

    Thanks! I went with a Big Split per Nordstrand’s recommendation and they pair very well. The bass originally had just the P which was simple and beautiful looking, but I later had Martin add the bridge pickup which provided the clarity and definition I prefer. Can’t recommend Martin enough, great guy to work with. Same with Nordstrand - top notch service.
