  1. Im looking to buy and upgrade this bass http://www.rondomusic.net/product744.html

    the SX SJB-75 4+1 Nat

    from the website it says the Pickup dimensions are 3 5/8" x 3/4"

    Now im on Bestbassgear.com and am looking at the 5 string J Style Bass Pickups
    http://www.bestbassgear.com/bartolini-5-string-j-pickups.htm

    it is saying there are two different size options:

    59 J1 L/S (59 Long/Short)
    - - Fits non-Fender, J style Basses requiring one long and one short J style pickups.

    Pickup Length:
    Bridge - 95mm (3.73")
    Neck - 91mm (3.60")

    ----------------------
    Bartolini 59 J1 L1/LN1 (59 Long/Long

    - - Fits non-Fender, J style Basses requiring two long J style pickups

    Pickup Length:
    Bridge - 95mm (3.73")
    Neck - 95mm (3.73")




    So would any of these fit on the SX bass? If not, anyone have any experience upgrading pups on this model?

    FWIW:

    the basic 4 string J pair are long (3 11/16") and short (3 9/16") covers on - which can vary a 1/16" with some pups. That's what Leo started and everyone else followed. Some basses like the early MIM's used a pair of shorts. They can be purchased seperately so not an issue. A few basses (ie. Ken Smith) have used the J45's which went in his 4 AND 5 strings basses.

    5 strings J I have no idea about length.

    To see if pups will fit, measure yours, take the dimensions given by the site, convert as necessary and there's your answer.

    Given there's slight variation, you may have to shave a little regardless but it won't amount to much.
