    One question about the 5-string Explorer kit

    I recently placed an order for this kit, and I'm curious about the size of the pickup routs. Thinking about getting a set of either nordys or barts

    At work right now so cannot measure but from memory they are about 40 mm x 100 to 110 mm. Can provide exact measurements later tonight.
    Bartolini has something that will fit.....i ended up using Custom Benson's.....you can check them out from the link in my signature.
    Cheers Waz

    Just measured stock pickups which are 104 mm x 39 mm.
    The Custom Bensons I installed are 100 mm x 36 mm and fill the holes easily.
    I also used the black conductive shielding paint that helps to disguise any gaps.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers, Waz

    Thanks, guys.. My kit arrived surprising quickly, and it didn't take long to find out EMG40 is the closest fit.. might pull the trigger on a pair of Delano SBC5's, or Nordy fat stacks..
