    I have two soapbars, 72P55CT and 72P55CB, and I don't know much about Barts numbering system. I know the P5 corresponds to the dimensions of the pickup, but the rest of it I am unsure of. The website didn't help much as there is only a fax number on there.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    72P55CT - 72 mm spacing, P5-shape 5-string, C - (bright?); T - treble, that is, bridge p-up

    72P55CB - same, except for B - bass, that is, neck p-up.

    There should be some more info hidden on the Bart site, you just have to look for it. Got to check out if the C is bright or deep, as I'm not sure.

    Hey, they snuck a new shape in there! :)

    Yes, then that means:

    72 - 72mm spacing
    P5 - P5 shape
    5 - 5 string
    C - regular ("dark") windings
    T/B - treble/bass (bridge/neck)
