The GZR PJ Bass Pickups were developed by EMG with legendary bassist Geezer Butler, they worked to create a passive pickup with a truly vintage tone an feel, recapturing his early Black Sabbath tone. The pickups use Alnico V pole pieces and custom wound coils for just the right amount of punch and grit with a deep, tight low end. The J pickup features two custom wound split-coils to eliminate the noise and hum usually associated with early 70's bass pickups and allows for more power and volume than any other standard single coil J, creating a remarkable balance between the P and the J. The pickup features their solderless system for quick and easy installation, it comes with everything you need including two 250k volume pots, a 250k tone pot, mono output jack and all required connector wires.

Great upgrade - and easy to install.

Great upgrade, love the sound.
Ordering was simple and prompt delivery from Glued To Music.

Bought a secondhand bass at a very reasonable price as it was in need of some love and attention. Previous owner had really messed up the wiring as in neck pick-ups not connected, bridge ground not connected but jack plug signal and ground terminals connected with a bridge wire.

I wanted these not just for the sound they promised but also for the solderless wiring setup. The bass is a solid body so was a little concerned on whether the connectors would pass through the drilled "tunnels" to the pick-ups. I need not have worried the installation was simple and was up and running within 45 minutes (included fitting and tuning new strings).
