Product# 308024

The Passive EMG 45HZ Pickup for 6-string bass features a dual-coil design for low noise and plenty of output. Using EMG's "CS" design (Ceramic and Steel), this pickup has the punch and fullness of older passive designs along with added brightness for a better defined tone. EMG-HZ bass models feature Solid "Bar" Poles that cover the entire width of the strings so any string layout can be used. Using an Extended Series housing, it is a direct replacement with EMG's entire "Active" pickup line. All HZ Pickups have EMG's exclusive 5-wire Quik-Connect output allowing any number of wiring combinations, and are fully shielded for a minimum of noise. String grounding is recommended to further decrease noise.
Package Includes: Mounting screws.

Comments about EMG 45HZ Passive 6 String Bass Pickup:

Direct replacement for LTD Basses. If you want to go-passive or improve the overall response in a quick , easy, cheap way, this is the best shot.

Comments about EMG 45HZ Passive 6 String Bass Pickup:

First off, this retailer has one of the most protective shipping methods I've seen so far. The package was in a huge box being that it is just a pickup and there were 2 boxes just to protect the original pickup packaging. The pickup is aesthetically beautiful and I'm sure it will definitely sound great on my custom Multiscale 10 String guitar that I'm building. Thanks
