    It was on my bass for a day. It just wasn't for me. I carefully sanded it using a piece of marble block down to the width of 3 pennies. Check the slot in your bridge wing on the E-Side to make sure that it is not larger than that.

    I'll include all of the original packaging and paperwork. The pickup is in perfect shape. It's not a bad pickup. I just don't really like pickups that much. I think it would be best used with a preamp of somekind, but it probably depends somewhat on your set up and preferences.

    Upton sells them for $99 + shipping, how about $85 and I'll take care of shipping to the lower 48? I'll guarentee full refund at your shipping expense if not as advertized, but I wouldn't risk my reputation and good standing on this board for $85, so buy with confidence.

    I'll measure it again, it could have been 4 pennies, but I'm thinking it was 3.

    Anyone else?

    I have my bassmax in there like that. I know it's done commonly, but I can't help but think it might cause you "to lose something." Maybe not, I'm no expert by any means. I'll try to mic my airgap tonight and give you a definative number. If it'll work, I'd sure like it;)
