    I have 1 NIB/Brand New EMG P-6 pick up for sale. I had a Peavey Tl-6 that actually two of these puppies: Amazing sound. They are made for six string bass, but I would imagine they could also be used for 4 or 5 string as well. 60.00 shipped.

    The EMG-P6 is just like an EMG-P, the Bass pickup of choice since it was developed, except it's sized for 6-string bass instead of a 4-string. The EMG-P6, like all the original EMG's, went through a redesign in 1979. The original "Embossed EMG Logo" model made everybody sit up and listen. The pre-79 models are still used by players like Lee Sklar and Alphonso Johnson. More than just a few have gravitated to the EMG-P for stage performance and studio recording. The EMG-P6 uses short, squat coils that have very little resistance and plenty of inductance. Because the coils are not in series like the passive types, there's about twice as much low end as a passive pickup. Ceramic magnets are used to add clarity. Countless pros use it because they find it has a natural presence, powerful lows, punchy mid-range, and superior definition.

    The EMG-P6 features hum-free noiseless operation with an even timbred response. The P design was adapted for Ned Steinberger and became the EMG-SS (Steinberger Sound) used exclusively on the Steinberger Headless Bass. In order to make the composite bass sound more natural, EMG added steel poles for warmth and midrange. The EMG-P6 is for six-string bass. Maximum overall string spacing for the EMG-P6 is 3 inches (76mm).

    Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect™ cable, prewired solid shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, adjustment screws.
