First off I want to say thanks to Fat Bass Tone for helping me get the right pickup, I ordered the wrong size EMG at first and they allowed me to exchange it for this one.
I got this for pickup for my dean ML bass and it gave me the exact tone that I've been looking for. I play death metal and it's various subgenres and needed a solid tone that's very heavy on the low end but also clear and bright on the top with punchy mids. This pickup does the trick very well and can cut through a dense noisy mix.
Install was headache free and straight forward besides for the wire that connects the pot to the jack was about an inch or so too short. This is because my bass is oddly shaped and large so the distance from the input jack to the electronic cavity is farther than usual. EMG has the wire in different lengths on their website so it's an easy fix if you run into the problem.
Overall I'm very satisfied with this pickup and also the service here at FBT, will definitely do business again in the future!
