    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!
     
  6. The link and the photo don't work anymore.

    I am trying to find more info on this bass and have searched google.com, warwick.de and only found a couple of youtube clips that don't give any real info. Specifications?

    Is this a one off for Mr Johnson, or can anyone get the "Alphonso Johnson" Jack Bruce Infinity fretless?

    Cheers,
