The EMG P is our P bass pickup in an Extended range housing with the treble magnet closer to the neck (like a Spector or Yamaha bass).

The EMG P covers a wide sonic palette of classic and modern bass sounds. Because the P 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.

The added head room and dynamic response of the X Series preamp gives players an active pickup with the feel closer to a passive.

To complete a set two pickups will be required.

I bought an EMG 40P and 40J to replace the EMGHZ's in a Schecter, becuase i have the EMG PJ in a 4 string Fender that I love. The tone of the P is amazing, but I feel the 40J is a little weak on the low B and will be replacing it with a 40DC for the bridge.

Big, fat sound
By David
Not much to say. I found it great when paired with an EMG 35J pickup in the bridge position for some added clarity.
This pickup delivers the big, fat, warm sound that gives the music that full sound.
