The EMG 40J is our original J pickup in a Extended series housing for 5 string bass. This pickup has its coil located in the back of the housing - closer to the bridge - which gives it sweeping harmonic overtones and punch. This quiet pickup has classic jazz bass characteristics with a broader tonal frequency range that adds dimensions and clarity. EMG's design has a very low ratio of resistance to inductance, which increases the low end response, while the radiused ceramic bar magnet ensures the tone keeps a tight mid-range punch with a dynamic high end. For players who want a slightly more mellow sound, you can order this pickup as a "reverse," where to coil is closer to the neck side (or front) of the cap. This pickup uses a housing that is 4 inches (102mm) and includes EMG's solderless wiring and pots.

Awesome Skull-Crushing Sound & Easy No-Mod's Installation

Gregory L. /Reviewed 8/9/2019

I bought a 40P5, 40J and a BQS System to upgrade my 1991 Japanese-made Ibanez 5-string bass. I replaced the original factory electronics and soapbar humbucker pickups. All the EMG components fit perfectly with no mods, though I did use the existing output connector because the one provided was too short. My old Ibanez is again my favorite bass. The sound and quality of the P/J pickup combo is wonderful, and with the BQS tone controls adjusted and the volume ramped up the sound is absolutely skull-crushing in a good way!! I am so very pleased and highly recommend these products.

Rhyno /Reviewed 1/27/2019

I love these pickups. I swapped the original MFD pickups from my G&L Tribute L2500 for a pair of these with the BQS system, and it sounds so good that I just cant put my bass down. Plus installing them was a breeze. Nice work EMG!!!
