    They're not EMGs. They look like a pair of EMGEMGs!

    Nice bass, however I do not understand the reasoning behind the pickups being as gauche as the way they are and the slightly weird control layout. That's what customs exist for though....

    Looks like a fun bass, especially what with the piezos and all....

    The pickups are EMG's, that were made especially for Alphonso. They were reverse-engineered by Rob Turner at EMG from a set of very early EMG pickups that Alphonso had in an old Alembic bass (some of the first ones made). I hope this helps! Thanks!
