I'm confused about the differences in the types of pickups on bass guitars, primarily the differtences between single-coil, Humbuckers, and EMG pickups. Do these three types of pickups have a certain genre of music that they perform the best in? Thanks for your help.
EMG is a brand.

also, FAQ.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

EMG is a brand, like Seymour Duncan or Fender.

Different pickups give you different sounds, but yeah, check the FAQ. It's a good guide.
