EMG 45CS 6-String Bass Active Pickup (NEW/UNUSED) - $200 ono
« on: October 29, 2009, 03:05:00 PM »
Up for sale is an unused/new condition EMG 45CS (Ceramic/Steel) active pickup, for a 6-string bass guitar. I received this uninstalled/unopened with my 6-string bass, and initially planned to install it upon purchasing another EMG pickup and EQ system, but I've decided that I'm happy with the stock pickups in my bass, and I need to save for an amp upgrade first. The pickup comes in its original padded box, with all wiring, pots, etc included. The plastic wrapping on the pickup itself has been opened, but that was only to inspect it closer to see if it fit my bass' existing pickup routing, it has not been otherwise used in anyway.

Description from official site (
Part of our Extended Series, the 45CS, with its modern appearance is actually a product of 30+ years of design experience. Reproducing an extended range cleanly - both higher AND lower - taxes the abilities of conventional pickups. In the 45CS, we have succeeded in getting this extended range by utilizing an ultra low noise, low-impedance internal preamp, paired with parallel placed coils like the DC, but loaded with ceramic steel. The result is that the 45CS is much warmer as a result of the higher inductance of the steel, and thus has a smoother attack and a flatter high end. They are the most "Traditional" sounding of the group. This model uses an extended housing that is 4.5 inches (115mm), perfect for most six string spacing?s. From classic rock to heavy metal this pickup performs.

Store Links:

The pickup retails for around $279.00 AUS.

I'm thinking $200 is a fair price, but I am open to offers before I chuck this up on eBay.

Contact either by replying in this thread, or sending me a PM.
I must slumber, per se.
