    Are they standard width for replacement pickups from Nordstrand, Sadowsky, Fralin, etc...

    I know the older MIM 5 string basses were not standard width. Have they changed that?

    I'm not worried as much about the neck pickup as I am the bridge pickup. Extra routes can be hidden by a pickguard. If the bridge pickup doesn't fit, harder to get around that.
