emg p pickup cover ????? emg restoration

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by crocau, Nov 9, 2004.

  1. Hi ! I have taken out an EMG P out of an old cheap bass that had stuff glued and painted on the pickup. I ended op sanding the pickup... to end up having a very ugly looking pickup ! That I wish to put on a very good looking Fender bass... Is there some pickup covers that can fit on an emg ??
    Would a cover changer the sound ??

    Thanks in advance for your advises.
  2. nothing readily available, I assume, as the EMG is molded right to the size of a standard P pup, and the guts are epoxied inside...

    Not that I suggest this at all, but you COULD sand the profile down so it would fit under a replacement P cover, but then again, it has no pole pieces...and you entirely run the risk of ruining the coil/wrap if you sand too much by accident
