EMG Extended Series 45J-5 or 6-String
Single Coil Soapbar Pickup


Active Pickups/EMG

The 45J model uses a single coil design resulting in a less powerful low end, but brings a much more prominent midrange. The low frequency response from the low ratio of resistance to inductance helps the 45J hits that typical Jazz Bass tone by maintaining the narrow aperture.

Sporting a sleek 4.5 inch (115mm) black design housing, the 45J unit brings a versatility which allows it to work well with a 5 or 6-string bass.
