The EMG 40P5 is our P bass pickup in an Extended range housing with the treble magnet closer to the neck (like a Spector or Yamaha bass). The EMG 40P5 covers a wide sonic palette of classic and modern bass sounds. Because this pickup utilizes ceramic magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone has brilliant high-end articulation, warmth, and incredible low end punch. Countless pros use this bass pickup because of its natural presence, superior dynamics, and low noise. For players who want a "Fender" P alignment - with the treble side closer to the bridge - we offer this pickup in "reverse". Utilizing EMG's solderless wiring, this pickup is easy to install at home. The EMG 40P5 uses a 40 Extended housing that is 4 inches (102mm) and is intended for 5 string basses that have a standard string spacing.

Awsome 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.
