im sure this has been posted in the past, but i did a bit of searching and couldnt find it

but im building a custom bass, and i want to use EMGs

but know 0 about them

my band plays mostly metal

so any suggestions on what ones to get for neck/bridge?

help would be appreciated

please dont just flame me about this being a thread in the past

if you have to flame please at least answer my question while doing so

I suggest the EMG DC series. Just choose whether you want the 4, 5, or 6 string version. Most of the high-end basses that use EMG's in a soapbar shape use them.

in both neck and bridge?

Yep. That's what I would do.

You know nothing about EMGs... yet you want them in a custom bass?

I didn't know that EMG's brand name was so powerful...


I think a HB at the bridge and a single coil at the neck would be a good mix.

im asking about specific pickups man

To be honest, there's not a huge amount of choice when it comes to EMG pickups.

but you haven't told us what style of pickups you want.

Therefore, we can't help you.

Every pickup will work in every situation. What you want from them is what differs. Can you give us an example of a bass you've played that gave you the tone you want?
