    That was the next step... finding an owner and asking them a favor.

    Maybe as far number of windings or wire gauge, but I'm pretty sure the coils are shorter and wider than Jazz bass coils.

    But yeah, I'm primarily interested in the dimensions of the covers.

    Well, that pickup placement is used pretty extensively by Rickenbacker for their basses (a pickup at the 24th and 36th fret positions, really). So, I think it would sound pretty good. ;-)

    I made these a little while back, and they worked out great for me.

    Stainless steel blade, with neo rod magnets. Plenty of output, and still retains lots of highs and bass response is tight.
