    Hi
    Great bass! Just a note: The pickups are Sadowsky Passive Humbuckers; They stopped using EMG's around 2001 I beleive..
    This is actually a plus for you as most people do not like Sadowskys with EMG's.
    Good Luck with the sale!

    Those pickups are Sadowsky hum buckers, not EMGs.

    It was my misinformation that started the PU confusion. In my original post I described the PU's first as Nordies, then as EMG's. I've edited out those PU remarks when I realized my error but my edit was perhaps not helpful. When Roger discontinued using EMG's he continued using the EMG-size and shape casings for several years before introducing the presently offered slimmer shaped soaps. So the PU's on my bass look like EMG's because they're in the older style casings. Hope this helps :).
