EMG-SEHB...any good?

  1. I'm building a bass (shortscale, fretless) and these pickups are, well, cheap enough to waste on my first project...($23.90 @ stewmac)


    But are they any good?

    So THAT'S what they call the "Select" HB-sized pickups! They're not bad, and come as standard on MusicYo Steinbergers. About the same quality as a MIM Fender.
     
  3. I've got them in my Hohner B2A.

    they're a bit dark-sounding - the neck pickup sounds like a P bass with the highs cut and the high mids boosted a bit.

    check out "look to the skies" on the mp3 page for The Now in my signature for a recording with this bass.
