What kind of Pickups do Rob Trujillo use?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by BiocidaL_Bass, Jul 29, 2003.


  1. I know Rob Trujillo plays fernandes gravity series basses, but the pickups in his basses are noiseless pickups, so what kind of pickups does he use?

    i'm not sure what's up with rob now, but on his old tobias basses, his pickups were custom made by his bass tech. i don't know about his fernandes basses...sorry...
     
  3. he still plays his tobias('s) but he has a fernandes endorsment and he plays them also, but thanks anyway dude apreciate it.:bassist:
     
  4. I believe I remember reading that his pickup of choice for most of his basses, including the old Tobias, is EMG J-style pickups.
