Overview

EMG Pickups, along with legendary artist Geezer Butler, have collaborated to develop the GZR-P and GZR-PJ signature bass sets. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bass player started working with EMG founder Rob Turner in 2011, looking to find the classic bass tone he had in Black Sabbath's early days. As Geezer and Black Sabbath moved from studio to touring in 2013, the final component of getting the classic Geezer tone was in play, the rigors of a world tour.

To recapture Geezer's early Black Sabbath tone, it meant a new EMG vintage-style passive P & PJ design with a few modern touches. The all solderless P set uses Alnico 5 pole pieces and custom-wound coils for just the right amount of punch and grit. The J (PJ set) also uses Alnico 5 poles and features two custom-wound split-coils that both eliminate the noise and hum usually associated with early '70s bass pickups and allow for more power and volume than any other standard single-coil J, giving this set remarkable balance between the P & J. The result is unmistakable early Geezer Butler bass tone with deep, tight low end that you can hear on "Iron Man," "War Pigs" and "Paranoid." Said Geezer, "I never felt comfortable giving my name to any other pickups, but this time these have blown me away."

    Comments about EMG Geezer Butler Signature P Bass Pickup Set:

    I got a Dean $200 bass. Wanted to upgrade rather buy another bass
    & try to find 1 that's comfortable. Gzr pickups added growl to the sound.
    Electronics actually work on my bass now. Awesome

      Comments about EMG Geezer Butler Signature P Bass Pickup Set:

      These are great sounding pups! I got the p/j set 1st for a squire and was blown away by how easy they were to install, any one could do it. But the sound(sounds) you can get, anything from Motown to Sabbeth to Pink! You can do it all and get any sound you want. I got a p bass set next for my fender and ya! same thing.....what ever sound you want. They cut through the mix great! The pots that come with them are smooth and I feel like I get better tone control also. I've used SD quarter pounders and the Steve Harris pickups, also the fender 62's. the EMGs sound sooo much better plus you get new pots!
