Product Description

EMG Pickups along with legendary artist Geezer Butler have collaborated to develop the GZR-P and GZR-PJ signature bass sets. 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 P and 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 J (PJ set) also uses Alnico 5 poles and features two custom wound split-coils that both eliminate the noise and hum usually associated with early 70’s bass pickups and allow for more power and volume than any other standard single coil J giving this set remarkable balance between the P & J. 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.”

Looking for 60's bass tone? This is it!

Product Review

I love the deep bass tone of the late 60's/ early 70's and this set delivers. I was also able to get a brighter high end with a few adjustments. Turned the tone pot down and got that growl without putting a sponge near the bridge. Installation was easy. Just don't follow the videos on You Tube. I did that and got a ton of hum. Reverted to the directions and no problem, done in a snap. All hardware is also included in the kit. In total great tone, solderless hardware included, and easy install. EMG delivers. This kit from is well worth it.

Take me back to the 70's

Product Review

If you want an old school booming bass, then this is your go to pick up! Sounds great! Install was fairly simple. Definitely worth the money. If I bought another bass today, would I buy this pick up? You bet your (b)ass I would.

Been looking for this tone for a long time! Sounds incredible through my Orange OB-500. The best part was no soldering!

Grind & Growl

Product Review

I installed this in a new Fender MIM Classic Series 50s Precision with flat wounds, but I'd expect great results with round wounds, too. For comparison, the S.D. Quarter Pound pickup has somewhat higher output, but the EMG offers superior tone and greater ease of installation. I own 2 active Lakland 5s with higher output, but this pickup holds its own! It drives my compressor pedal to produce a punchy, growling, dynamic tone with fingers or pick. It's a dynamic tone machine! I think this will be a big seller for EMG. I highly recommend this pickup!

I think EMG and Geezer hit the nail on the head. It's the sound I've been searching for.

Monster Tone!

Product Review

Huge fat grinding tone that isnt too muddy or too bright. That perfect midrange crunch with solid bottom end. And really high output like an active pickup but no battery! Nice! And its easy to install. Sounds very much like Geezer's tone on his latest album 13
