    I recently bought the EMG Geezer Butler P/J set for my Ibanez Mikro GRSM20B bass. I have seen people saying they drop in perfectly, but that is not the case. The J Pickup is too big to fit in mine. Now I am stuck with these pickups. Does anyone know what I should do? If I get it routed for this longer pickup, the string spacing will be off.

    Return them. I hated the sound in my Ibanez. Return them & get DiMarzios, and a set of Chromes. Waaaay better.

    My biggest thing is that I really loved the sound of these. I don't know if you would happen to know if EMG has this but in a smaller J pickup. Also, there are many people out there with these in their Mikros. I just don't understand how they dropped them in. Plus, I don't think they will allow me to return them, because they will say it is my fault I ordered them.

    Was it the DP126 set?

    EMG makes a GZR P/J set with a short J pickup. See if you can exchange your current pickups for the short J set.

    I have seen them in other places, but it was a while ago when there was a lot of hype for these pickups, so I don’t remember exactly where right now. Enough people have them, so they must be around.

    Contact EMG and see if they will exchange the J pickup. It can’t hurt to ask.
