Rocco EMG pickup tone

    I picked up a copy of Rocco's video for fingerstyle funk and like the tone he gets with the bass he used in the video. The tone, especially the higher notes, has sort of a "rubbery" texture to it that I can't explain. It's got growl but it's got this really nice nasal sort of snuffleupagus sound that rides along.

    I'm pretty sure the pickups are EMG - they do not look like a stacked pair of P bass pickups, or the narrow bar like Jazz bass pickups. They look much wider than the jazz bass bar, more like 1 1/2 inches wide.

    I did a little looking and it seems EMG makes a lot of pickups with that form factor but I can't find anything that details what model he uses. Carmine Rojas has a similar tone with his ESP guitars.

    I really like that tone - just not sure what pickup make/model they are. Any ideas?
