    Not sure what you mean.

    From the website:

    "The pickups are designed for traditional 4 string jazz bass spacing and are suitable for narrow 5 string instruments."

    From the ad copy these are a standard EMG J set (if it ain't broke don't fix it) with those slick slick stainless covers. Very nice aesthetic!

    I guess everyone in Metallica needs their own signature EMGs. ;)

    Lars is gonna be jealous. :D

    I think the stainless covers look pretty cool. :cool:

    The covers look really cool.
    Looking at the specs, the only other difference is the RT pickups are not as tall as typical EMG J pickups. .75" vs .90". That can be a dealmaker for some basses.

    They look great and all but what a horrible product launch. Their YouTube channel gives you a minor teaser of the sound then tells you to go to the website where there's no demo video..or the video/website is not working?

    Larson shouldn't be jealous as He had the first signature out of any of them.His Tama Artstar kit was the first signature kit Tama ever did.

    Yes. I know. There’s also the KH20 set. :)
