    I have Fender American pups in my Squier P5 but i’m strongly considering getting a pair of barts

    No need for concern, that's not how pole pieces work: the magnetic field is continuous.

    There may be routing needed though, since the BL design has two equal sized housing pieces.

  3. Just the 60's p. It's a really full and smooth pickup. Hard to compare to the original Lakland pickup because the Lakland pups had died but I'm really happy with the Aguilar.

    What happened for me on my Lakland is the pole pieces on the a string overlapped. This made the a string louder than the other strings no matter what adjustments I made. It has to do with the bass having routing that fits a traditional p pickup, but it is expected that pickups will follow a 3 + 2 pattern.

    Interesting.

    My only experience with that pickup is on a four string P, and the response was more even than any other P bass I've ever played; I didn't even notice the odd number of pole pieces at first.

    sorry to bump this old thread, but I was wondering if the bridge you have on the bass pictured was a direct replacement and if so where did you get it?
