    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum... just to find out something....

    I'm planning to change my pickups for my yamaha RBX760
    But i measured the dimensions....

    It only fit a EMG-45DC pickups.... which are meant for 6-strings.... but mine is a 4-string bass...

    Is it ok to replace my pickups with the EMG?

    are there any other options....?

    If I'm not mistaken, emg soapbar pickups are lengthwise magnets, so that'd work fine. You wouldn't have any pole piece alignment issues.
