    The pickups came out of an Essex BG205 5 string (made in China, I think).

    They are passive, came with V/V/T pots (which I will include). 4x1.5 inches. They work fine.

    I replaced these with EMG40dcs and a BTS pre-amp. I like actives.

    Hope this helps.

    I have two of them..a regular bent metal one from an SX fiver (which I replaced with a schaller roller-bridge), and an Ibanez BTB-type monorail bridge for 5 string.

    They are five independent pieces, chrome. Comes with ten screws, and allen wrenchs for fully adjustable string width and intonation.

    What is the spacing on the regular 5 string bridge? What are the overall dimensions of the entire bridge? Thanks :)

    Nick,

    Dimensions are the same as the Schaller 5 string bridge on the Warmoth site. I dropped it right in.

    The intonation screws are a little stripped, but work. If you'd like it, I'll send it over for shipping only.

    :)
