The PA pickup is based on the originals EMG P but utilizes Alnico V magnets instead of ceramic.

This gives the PA a warmer tone that has more vintage character. Because the PA utilizes Alnico V magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is open, rich, and has less noise than most stock P bass pickups. For those who seek an active P pickup with a more vintage tone, the PA is a natural choice.

Complete with EMG's solderless wiring control kit, this pickup is a breeze to install on your own.

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

Package Includes

  • EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect™ cables
  • Prewired solid shaft volume/tone control set
  • Output jack
  • Battery clip set
  • Adjustment screws

Please Note:EMG supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.

Great !

Incredible pickup ! Tone is very close to a vintage Fender without all the downsides you get from a passive pickup, and with a higher output too. No noise at all. I had a PX at first but it was too sterile on my P-bass (naturally bright because of the maple fretboard), then I tried a EMG P from my Spector (which was better and more balanced), until I found the perfect match with the PAX.
