Pups for MightyMite's 5string PBass...

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by MonticelloRoad, Jan 20, 2005.


  1. I just bought a MightyMite 5string PBass body...The routing for the 5 string Pbass is not what I expected... this could be a good thing b/c it may open up more options than expected. I need help finding some passive pickups that will fit the dimesions for this bass w/o major modifications. Here are the dimensions for the pickup cavities... a photo is included for visual reference...

    Neck: 4-3/8ths x 1-7/8ths
    Bridge: 4-1/8ths x 1-5/8ths

    The neck pickup rout is larger than the bridge pickup rout because it will be covered by a pickguard, and the oversized rout will allow you to use a different sized pickup than the bridge location has. Of course, you will need a custom-made pickguard but it will hide the hole when it is installed. I have several basses that use that same method of pickup installation.
