EMG Jazz Bass Pick-up Installation


Here at MayosMusic, in addition to offering great guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo and autoharp lessons, we are also a complete luthier service that includes guitar/bass, all string instruments plus amplifier, studio, stage, sound reinforcement and guitar effect electronics repairs/restorations.

Below are the pictures of the custom installation and modification of EMG pick-ups into a USA Fender Jazz Bass. This bass is owned by Aaron Mason, a professional bass player and record producer. Aaron plays bass for Drew Simpson (Jazz Guitarist), is a studio/session bassist and has produced many albums. Aaron wanted a bass with a tight controlled sound and wisper quiet (no hiss/hum) for studio recording. His choice were the EMG's.

We installedd the EMG's with new pots, jack, etc. Plus complete shielding of the basses cavities. Then a complete set-up.

Note: I recently saw Aaron perform with Drew Simpson at a jazz club in Seal Beach called Spaghettini. He's a great jazz bass player and his Candy Red Jazz/EMG bass sounded great.

We did not take pictures of the Fender Jazz Bass before the EMG's were installed.


The preceding photos show the EMG's installed in the candy red Fender Jazz Bass, shiedling of electrical cavitites and custom wiring.

I do not have After pics at this time

Jazz is just way too cool!!
