    Totally worth it! By:
    Awesome tone. I have an old old Palmer bass that has a great feel and playability. But the electronics were as cheap as cold be. These new PUPS really make is shine now
    Greatest product ever By:
    Wow my bass went from ok to great this product is a tone god
    Your search for tone ends here. By:
    If you're looking for great tone this is it. I put this in a $70 Chinese P-bass and the difference was night and day. Clear highs, crisp mids and thunderous lows. Great sustain and punchy. If Thor, the God of Thunder, was a bass pickup, this would be it. Highly recommended.
    great tones! By:
    deep bass sound, great tones!
    Good quality, easy enough to install By:

    Squier P-Bass upgrade. By:
    Squier P-Bass upgrade. WOW what a difference over the stock pick-ups. Wonderful tone, quality components, comes with accurate wiring diagram, easy to install ( desolder 2 old wires then solder 2 new wires ).
    Excellent By:
    Really nice, balanced sound- noise free- clean
    I nice update for the right price By:
    Amazing pickups, totally worth it. I installed them in a MIM Precision Bass and the sound changed for the best. More low end, punch and a very well defined high end without losing that P-Bass pickup sound that we all love. Definitely a more modern sound than a vintage one, but I found it to work great for blues and funk nonetheless.Even though it's the only thing I changed so far on that bass the tone control took a new life.Installation requieres you to know how to solder, it's just two cables and instructions with diagrams are provided. Then it's just a matter of set-up the height of the pickups, I found this ones are more "hot" than the original ones so I have them a little lower than I used to.All in all a great upgrade for not a lot of money.
    Wake up your P bass. By:
    Replaced my Saga P bass kit pickup's with these and it really woke that bass up.Now my bass sounds like a P bass should.
    wonderful, much hotter & better sounding than the org By:
    wonderful, much hotter & better sounding than the org. fender pickups. will likely buy more.

    Excellent replacement pickup By:
    Excellent replacement pickup. Very pleased with the output and time. Vintage Fender P bass tone with fat thick greasy lows without being muddy. Used these on a Squire Vintage Jaguar Short scale with round wounds. Good note articulation. Can't beat them for the price. Would but again.
    New pick-ups work like a charm By:
    I guess its my fault for not measuring, but the plastic covers didnt fit in the space i had. I simply took em off and used my old covers. New pick-ups work like a charm though
    Five Stars By:
    Fit perfectly!
    $10 for a unbelievable upgrade. I'd pay $50 easy. By:
    I bought these for the super cheap "GoPlus" bass found here: Goplus Electric Bass Guitar Full Size 4 String with Strap Guitar Bag Amp Cord (Blue)The pickups on the GoPlus bass are absolutely horrible and hardly put out any signal at all. After upgrading to these pickups the difference was night and day. Instead of a dead, dull sounding twang, I now get the deep, warm, bone rattling bass tone that I was looking for.These pickups fit the GoPlus pick-guard perfectly without modification, however the screw holes on the body of the guitar were slightly off.One thing I don't understand is why the covers/screw brackets on these pickups keep falling off. The pickup needs to be securely fastened to the bracket in order for it to properly attach to the bass, but they are loose as separate pieces.I had to use glue to permanently bond the two parts together.I suppose they are shipped in pieces in case you want to use a different pickup cover/bracket?Anyway it all worked out in the end, love the sound!

    Fit almost perfect. I had to dremmel out the pickguard to fit the larger screw posts but that was nothing.

    These pickups are excellent. The black plastic covers aren't good and didn't fit my bass, but that doesn't matter at all. Why? BECAUSE THESE PICKUPS ARE AMAZING.Do yourself a favor and go watch the music video for "New Year's Day" by U2. When you do, you will hear a bass putting out the same tone you get from these pickups. It is rich and even across the entire spectrum of my bass. Rich, fat, tone.These aren't "Good for the price". These have THE tone that precision bass players want.
    HOT PICKUPS! By:
    Not what I expected for this price, these pups are "HOT"!, and they sound pretty good too, the covers are vinyl so they'll probably scratch up pretty easily, but you can always change those. I'm going to try them in a new p-bass build of its own.
    Great for the price! By:
    Had an old Pbass copy that I wanted to "revive" for emotional reasons. These babies pulled the job flawlessly. They actually sound VERY good.
    Work Great On My YAMAHA Bass! By:
    I've used these pick ups for my YAMAHA Bass Guitar and they work just fine!Like most pick ups, they work just fine and I can set my dials and get into the grooveand get by with these at any gig I play.
    awesome! By:
    Great fender style pickups for a fraction of the price. Work and sound great.

    ? By:
    Great pickup!
    Toss the instructions - follow the video By:
    Warm & wonderful, punchy tone and easy installation *IF* you don't try to make sense of the convoluted instructions in the box. Ignore them and follow the simple, step-by-step video from EMG instead and you'll be golden.
    Love it. Will buy again If I get another p-bass. By:
    I spend a few years eying this pickup, and after a non satisfactory recording with my fender american standard precision 2012 with original pickups, I decided to go with the EMG Geezer’s. What a diference!!!! Best tone I ever got on a fender bass. I am a blues/jazz/top 40s player, not a metal guy. This is the best old school vintage sound you can get without the noise you might get with the real fender pickup.
    Nice Heavy Tone! By:
    Bought these for a cheaper bass that I inherited. The stock pickups were very weak, so I decided to throw these in. It made a huge difference in volume and tone (Slapped some new DR Hi-Beams on), sounds like a proper heavy metal bass. These have a nice grunt to them. They're not too hot, but enough to bring a little grind into the bass tone. The solderless connect system is amazing, making installs stupid easy.
    Night and day difference. Great tone. By:
    Upgraded my Yamaha PJ Bass. It is like night and day. These pickups are great. Easy to install. Should have upgraded a year ago. Very happy with these.
    Awesome! ! And easy to install! ! By:
    Turn the volume all thr way up. No noise what so ever. Easy to install. Only thing is thr instructions were a little confusing.
    Five Stars By:
    Sounds great, I put this on a MIM Fender precision and I am impressed. Worth the money.
    Very easy installation for non-experts By:
    These pickups really do live up to their claims. First, installation was a breeze. My Precision was modified so I had a little difficulty fishing the j-bass pickup wore through the hole that was there. I removed the plastic connector, fished the wires through, and reattached the plastic connector. Not a fault of the pick-ups. Second, the sound(s) that these pick-ups are able to achieve are amazing. Rich bottom with just the P-pickups just off of max, to a slighter brighter tone that will cut through any mix. This package transformed my 1997 PJ into the bass I’ve always wanted.
    Versatile, Not Just for Hard Rock and Metal By:
    Been playing bass for almost 40 years, and I just love these pickups, and I do not play heavy metal, or even much hard rock. I do love Geezer Butler, I must admit. But these sound great for lots of other types of music. When you roll back the tone knob, the low end is just majestic. I replaced the stock pickups in my MIA P bass, and I'm about ready to buy a 2nd set for a project bass I'm working on. Great value!
    Tone for days. By:
    Best pickups on the market. Easy to install with all pots and solder-less kit included. Midrange punch for days. These are based on Bobby Vega's 63' P-Bass (yes I know they have Geezer's name on them, but it's Bobby's bass they modeled them after). If you don't know who Bobby Vega is, check him out on YouTube and be blown away.If you want to be heard in the mix and sound great, go with these pickups. They beat any stock Fender offering at any level, even the American Pro series.
