EMG Pickups along with legendary artist Geezer Butler have collaborated to develop the GZR-PJ signature bass pickups. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bass player started working with EMG founder Rob Turner in 2011 looking to find the classic bass tone he had in Black Sabbath’s early days. As Geezer and Black Sabbath moved from studio to touring in 2013 the final component of getting the classic Geezer tone was in play, the rigors of a world tour.
To recapture Geezer’s early Black Sabbath tone, it meant a new EMG vintage style passive PJ design with a few modern touches. The all solderless P set uses Alnico 5 pole pieces and custom wound coils for just the right amount of punch and grit. The result is unmistakable early Geezer Butler bass tone with deep, tight low end that you can hear on "Iron Man", "War Pigs", and "Paranoid" just like 1970’s. Said Geezer, "I never felt comfortable giving my name to any other pickups, but this time these have blown me away."
EMG Pickups are designed to provide a solderless installation (in some cases this may not be possible). A color instruction sheet is included with each set.
EMG Pickups s are warranted for a period of two years. See your installation booklet for details.
