NAMM 2014: Geezer Butler Teams up with EMG Pickups

We’re going to be headed over to the EMG booth today, and among the new pickups will be this set from Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler. They’re a passive P and J style design, appropriately named the GZR-P and GZR-PJ. They’re designed to replicate the tone of classic Sabbath recordings without the hum and noise of that older gear. This is a huge get for EMG, and you can get them yourself pretty soon. They’re up for preorder on EMG’s site at the link above.
