I wanted the best and these pickups are it!
WilliamTelecaster 29.12.2015
These EMG GZR-P Geezer Butler pickups have received rave reviews all over the Internet, and apart from the outstanding quality of tone, what sold me was the EMG solder-less wiring system. They were a joy to install, with gold plated push-on connectors, plush cloth covered wiring, and heat shrink tubing on all soldered joints. Included are top of the line CTS mini pots for tone and volume. There is even a gel filled crimp connector for an existing earth wire, so you don't even have to remove the bridge. Everything is included in a custom made box inlaid with high density none perishable foam - perfect for cutting to size to fit under the pickups. The coils are encased in epoxy resin, making the pickups impervious to feedback from stage performance sound pressure levels. For passive pickups they have quite a hefty output, and could be described as 'high fidelity with added grunt'. An incredibly versatile sound, equally at home with flats or round-wound strings. And above all, they are QUIET - no hiss or hum. They can even be fitted to a lefty bass, albeit upside down, but 'do-able' straight out of the box. A lot of thought and care from EMG has gone into producing these pickups, and I for one, absolutely love em.

Easy to install and great sound improvement
Stefano_80 06.06.2020
I installed these pickups on my Squier Precision MIJ ('93). Installation was quite easy and the instructions were easy to follow. The only missing information is about the use of foam. I did put some of the foam included in the package, although it wasn't written in the instructions, in order to allow the height adjustment. The pickups are very quiet when the bass is not played. Also the sound is nicer, rounder and warmer than with stock pick-ups. Pots' shafts are 1/4' diameter and I had to buy new knobs since the old would not fit. Overall, I'm very pleased.

Good for certain applications
Gravfenbach 20.09.2020
I fitted these to a Squire 70s P-Bass as the stock pick-ups were not great.
Though these are a definite improvement, imo they are an acquired taste. Higher output than I am used to from a P-Bass and, despite Geezers description of their tone, I would say they push the sound to something more modern whereas I prefer a vintage sounding P-Bass.
Still, the quality is great and the solderless system is excellent.
Very good but not outstanding.

Classic tone in a modern package!

A great passive P-Bass pick up with a classic vintage tonal character. Installation was incredibly easy. This has breathed new life into my dusty old P-bass... If it's good enough for the greatest rock bass player of all time, then it's good enough for me.
