    I was thinking about replacing my Carvin pickups with some emg's. I have the BB75 with a humbucker for the bridge pickup. I was wondering if emg makes a pickup that would match that ones size specs, if so which one. If theres anyone out there who has had success with this please help.
    Thanks.

    emg dosnt make a mm style p/u (i think thats what your talking about im not that familar with the carvin model #'s) if your looking for a mm style go for duncan or bartolini but if it is the j style hum emg makes those but check your dimentions first

    Do you know if there are any barts that have 4.6L and 1.9W. If there are which ones. I cant seem to download the size specs off the Bart website.

    Thanks

    I replaced my Carvin HB4 bridge pickup with a Basslines Musicman and changed the tap switch from parallel/split to parallel/split/series and it has made a world of difference in the sound. I will say that the Basslines pickup is very punchy!!! so make sure that is the sound you would want if you went with it
