  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 believe I remember reading that his pickup of choice for most of his basses, including the old Tobias, is EMG J-style pickups.

    picture of him in the current fender parts book shows him with a 4-string P bass with a single EMG.
