EMG HZ : do they all have the EMG plug in the back?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Inconnu, Aug 8, 2016.

  1. I was just wondering since when EMG was using the little plug in the back of their pickups, so that you don't need to use soldering. Any idea?
    Just evaluating the level of work needed if I were to replace the pickup on my Spectorcore...

    Not hard to find out if you pull out the pickup to have a look at the bottom, with a different pickup, you may have a different sound, but, it wont be that big of a change, the preamp that the humbucker, and the piezo run through is a significant part of the sound on that bass.

    Old EMG HZ pickups didn't have that. I had a schector from approximately 2005ish that had EMG HZ pickups and had the traditional wires coming out of it instead of the quick connects.
