The MK5CBC is a Cort Curbow® shape soapbar set for the neck and bridge positions. The dual coil design features powerful lows and low-mids - bright treble.
The "Classic Bass" series bass pickups are passive designs featuring an extended and more resonant frequency range. They have far more "air" and definition at the top without sacrificing lows and low mids. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
US Made Replacement/Upgrade for the MK-1 pickups found in some Ibanez, Cort, Lakland and others.
Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.
- Length = 4.24"(107.57mm) Width = 1.33"(33.66mm)
Please Note:Bartolini does not provide screws with their pickups. If you need pickup screws, you can get them on the Pickup Screws page.
If in doubt upgrade your MK1s with these!!

My only question is for the ~$200 bucks spent on the upgrade, why didn't I just buy a higher end bass..... Doesn't matter I am in love with her again.
If you are looking for a huge upgrade to al already decent bass with MK1s I suggest the MK5s. You will immediately hear the difference and the versatility and enjoyment of your bass is sure to grow.
