gzr p/j's in my P lyte

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by schecter5string, Dec 22, 2014.

  1. I want to put the Geezer Butler pickup's In my active P lyte. I am wanting to turn it into a passive instrument.
    My bass has 4 controls, V/Blend/B/T, the EMG's has 3 V/V/T(I believe)
    So, that leaves me with an extra control on my bass. So what do I put there?
    On the EMG site they have so tone pots, one is a booster(boost lows and highs, cuts mids) this one sounds like a terrible idea...
    The other one is a mid control, my question is will either of these work passive? Also if you was doing this mod what would you do?
    Thanks for your time and input.

    If you want to go passive, you can do V/V/T or V/V/T/T if you want to fill all 4 spots. Those circuits with bass, mid & treble are active circuits.
  3. That's is what I thought, but the guy I talked to at EMG recommend the Booster. I thought that was odd.
    He also said I couldn't go V/V/T/T when I asked him about it. Maybe he didn't understand I was going passive?
  4. I just got off the phone with EMG.
    They don't sell passive individual tone pots. I would have to buy a passive wiring kit. The geezer PU's come with a wiring kit, so what do you think they did?

    They are sending me a tone pot and jumper cables free of charge!! Woot Woot
    Gotta love great customer service!
