    Well, I've got EMG DC40s on my Spector NS5CR, and EMG Hz's om my Spector REX2000/5. They are pretty darned awesome for bass!!!

    Is your explorer the bass version, or is it the 6 string geetar??? I got an LTD explorer, with Duncan Designed humbuckers, they're pretty good for passive pups.

    The guitar tech I used put EMGs - don't know what ones on his Gibson Explorer, he reckons they're the only way to go!!!
     
  3. I've have EMG Hz's on my ESPand they sound great. You should be happy with them..
     
  4. Uncolored sound, extended bass and treble range, what's not to like? :D
