Ghost Pickups for Bass
Ghost loaded pickups let you get acoustic tone from your bass when installed with the Acousti-Phonic or use as a MIDI controller when installed with the Hexpander MIDI Interface. You can also use a set of ghost saddles to power both preamp kits at once.
Custom-engineered piezo crystals are encapsulated in a set of Graph Tech's patented String Saver saddles. The ghost Saddle Pickups have a natural compression effect, so you can play as hard as you want without overloading the input channel or experiencing the dreaded piezo "quack". Pickups are individually calibrated, and sets are precision-balanced, so you get even string-to-string output.
Saddle and Bridge Assembly Options
It is as easy as replacing your original saddles with ghost saddle pickups. The ghost Pickup Saddles can be installed in most Fender style P-Bass or J-Bass guitars as well as many others. We also offer ghost loaded versions of the Hipshot A Style bass bridge for four and five string.
Running ghost loaded pickups straight out.
For running your ghost saddle pickups straight to the 1/4" jack for signal processing outside the guitar, order the Passive Kit (PE-0400-00). This helps to impedance-match the piezo pickups to your amp, to prevent high frequency loss.
