The new narrow soapbars have the exact same centerline as the older, wider pickups. The photo analysis is not accurate....may be a function of camera angles, focal length, etc. Here is a photo from our CNC programming to show the old and new placement.
NICE! I didn't know you guys used any CNC!! I used to be a CNC machinist. Made motorcycle parts instead of the finest bass guitar parts on the planet! Glad you shared this tidbit!
