    Title says it all. Building a new 4 string, have Fender 60's CS P pickups in there that I love. Originally put in a Nordstrand dual coil, nothing but probs - It's phase is backwards, and blend pots, both 250K and 500K don't do a smooth fade between the two. So the Nordy is going back, but I need a replacement .

    Bart BC size.

  3. A successful bass bridge is successful independently of the pickups. However you might consider a Fender high mass bridge to match your Fender pickups based solely on uniformity of brand and not performance.
  4. I think he means bridge pickup, not actual hardware bridge.

    To the OP, unfortunately, I can't help. I don't think a P and a soapbar are a commonly used pair.

    Thanks, and yes, I am talking about the pickup, not the bridge.

    I have done it in the past on 5-strings, using SD NYC pickups. However, SD doesn't make it in BC size and I don't want to rout this body.
