    How do you measure string spacing for a 5 string 35" scale? I want to replace my pickups but manufacturers who make pickups need to know the string spacing before they can build the pickups for me.

    In reference to a pickup you'd want the distance from the outer edge of your lowest string to the outer edge of your highest string.
