Fantastic in a Les Paul bass

neepheid /Reviewed 2/26/2015

A while back I decided to rev up my Epiphone Les Paul Standard bass. As it has guitar humbucker sized pickups in mounting rings, choices were somewhat limited. In the end it was pretty much a no-brainer to trick it out with EMG-HB pickups. Night and day compared to the bass as was. Tight, punchy, authoritative sound leaps from the bass, it needs less actual volume to be heard in amongst the rest of the band so it's kicking out at all the right frequencies. Fitting was a breeze, straight into the existing pickup rings. Would recommend this to anyone with a bass sporting pickups in this particular form factor.

Awesome Bass Pickup

Magnavus /Reviewed 10/31/2014

I bought this along with another Pickup for my BC Rich, the HB Bass is at the Neck and it sounds amazing.

I use it for any Bass work I need to do, occasionally use it for Rhythm.
Either way it sounds fantastic.
