my first custom pick up
So I recently purchased a new GAMMA Alpha Bass from Joey M. I have always used EMG Passive pick ups as stated in an earlier post. I was blown away when I was told the Gammas come w MIJ pick ups. Then I figured they have to be MIJ Fender pups. The other day I played my bass and a Fender P w MIJ Fender pups. Mine were way more powerful to me and the owner of the shop agreed they were powerful then Fenders and the EMG he stated in every aspect, I listen for loudness w no distortion. So I emailed Joey from Gamma and said why are my MIJ pups so different then the Fender MIJ if your using the same pups. He clarified he designed his pick and they are deff custom and powerful. I put my EMG in a bass I built and it sounds great, but lacks the power of the Gamma. Any Gamma owners that use the Gamma pups feel free to tell me what you think about you pups and what model Gamma you have.
