Putting a triple coil pickup on a BTB?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Jul 1, 2005.

  1. Just after looking at the atk thread and getting chills, i was wondering, if i was able to get an ATK pickup, it should be possible to stick it in an ibanez BTB ?

    Just an idea, would probably have to be a 5 string atk pickup on a 4 string btb model (btb's have wider string spacing iirc)

    I know the pickup cavity would have to be made bigger, but it could be dooable right?
  2. I suspect Ibanez uses the the same pickup in 4 and 5 string ATK's. While the stringspacing on the fiver is very narrow, the four's is standard. (19mm at the bridge)
    I recently bought a 4 string ATK, and the length of the blades on the triple coil PU is 8.5 cm (or 3.35 inches), this should be more than enough.

    Hope this helps.
