The EMG 45PX is our PX bass pickup in an Extended range housing with the treble magnet closer to the neck (like a Spector or Yamaha bass).
The X Series preamp offers increased touch sensitivity and dynamic range, helping to bridge the gap between passive and active pickups. The EMG 45PX covers a wide sonic palette of classic and modern bass sounds. Because this pickup utilizes ceramic magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone has brilliant high-end articulation, warmth, and incredible low end punch. Countless pros use this bass pickup because of its natural presence, superior dynamics, and low noise.
For players who want a "Fender" P alignment - with the treble side closer to the bridge - we offer this pickup in "reverse".
Utilizing EMG's solderless wiring, this pickup is easy to install at home.
This pickup is housed in our Extended cap that is 4.5inches (115mm) and is intended for 6 string basses that have a string spacing of 3.75" max.
