The Thunderbird is a classic body style and EMG offers direct replacement pickups for players looking to get more from their instrument.
The EMG TBJ is our original J pickup in a TB cap. This pickup has its coil located in the back of the housing - closer to the bridge - which gives it sweeping harmonic overtones and punch. This quiet pickup has classic jazz bass characteristics with a broader tonal frequency range that adds dimensions and clarity. EMG's design has a very low ratio of resistance to inductance, which increases the low end response, while the radiused ceramic bar magnet ensures the tone keeps a tight mid-range punch with a dynamic high end.
The TBJ comes with all the wiring and pots you'll need to install at home.
