Authentic Black Sabbath Tone!

The EMG Geezer Butler Signature GZR-PJ passive bass guitar pickup set gives you the original Black Sabbath bass tones. These vintage-style P and J pickups have the deep, tight low end you know and love from Sabbath albums of the '70s. Using alnico 5 magnets, the EMG GZR-PJ provides all the fat bass tone you want without the hum and noise, something Sweetwater bass players look for, usually associated with single-coil pickups. This pickup set is well balanced with enough output and punch for everything from blues to hard rock. GZR-PJ pickups come with EMG's 5-wire quik-connect output, which allows for a number of wiring schemes. It's also fully shielded, so you'll always get low-noise operation from the EMG Geezer Butler Signature GZR-PJ pickup set.

EMG Geezer Butler PJ Pickups

I used these to mod a Squier Vintage Modified PJ bass, and did they make a world of a difference. I've use this bass now with these pickup on about 6 gigs now and people tell me they can't believe it's a Squier. I let them know that it's the picks that make it sound so good now. Would definitely buy these again, well worth the money, and very easy to do yourself.

great pickups

I researched these as replacement pickups for a Squire P/J bass(also purchased at Sweetwater)because of a 60 cycle hum when using the J bass pickup alone or mixed with the P bass. Whatever I tried(even a stop at my local Fender shop)would not stop the hum.Enter EMG. I bought these and had my Fender guy install them. He was surprised at the ease of install(solderless connections). Needless to say the EMG's delivered as promised. No hum.Although the sales lit says these lean towards the metal side, I find them to be right at home with classic rock, and all other styles of music through volume and tone adjustments on the guitar pots and amp.A great upgrade for all passive P/J bass setups. My bass has new life, better than plunking down $1,000-$2,000 on a new axe.

great pickups

An update on my previous review dated 6/20/16. I've had these for about 2 weeks now and love them. My issue was 60 cycle hum on the bridge pickup on my Squire P/J bass that I bought from Sweetwater. After install all noise has been eliminated-no hum. These provide more punch than the stock pickups from Squire(Fender) and the sustain is longer. Here's how I get the tone I like. I start with the tone control about 1/2 then dial the bridge pickup to about 1/2-3/4. That sets the "growl" factor if that's what you call it. I then dial the P pickup so that the "bass" starts to fill in-just under 1/2 on the volume dial. I run the bass through a Behringer 300 watt combo (bought from Sweetwater). From here I adjust the gain, 7 band EQ, compression and volume to my desired tastes. With this amp(or any amp with EQ) it is easy to take the Geezer metal flavor out of the pickups, or dial in any sound you like.These are keepers. The amp also never sounded so good.

great pickups

I have a Squire Mod Vintage P/J bass running through a Behringer BXL3000 amp. I've never been able to get rid of the 60 cycle hum with the bridge pickup, even with a Fender technician working on my bass. I bought these after some research. We installed them and the hum immediately disappeared. Even my tech was surprised. These are about 90-95% solderless. We had to use the stock 1/4" jack which needed soldering. The instructions were easy to follow and after about 1 hour of work I was up and playing. These are a little hotter than the stock pickups, but with some playing time they are good for all types of music, rock,jazz,country and metal. For the price these are a steal.
