EMG Introduces Geezer Butler Signature P and PJ Pickup Sets

EMG Geezer Butler Signature P and PJ Pickup Sets

EMG Pickups has unveiled the GZR-P and GZR-PJ signature bass pickup sets for Black Sabbath 4-stringer Geezer Butler. Designed with Butler, the pickups are made to reproduce the bassist’s tone during his earlier years in the band.

The vintage style sets offer old school vibe with a few modern touches. The P set is all solderless and uses Alnico 5 pole pieces with custom wound coils. The J-style pickup in the PJ set has two custom wound split-coils that eliminate hum and add volume.

The EMG Geezer Butler Signature Pickup Sets are available for pre-order and will be shipping in March. The GZR-P set has a a price of $109.99 while the GZR-PJ set will go for $149.99. For more info, check out the EMG Pickups website.
