How to install the GK pickup

Overhang Method
This method is for a bass with a small body or one with more than four strings that does not have enough room to install the controller on the front of the body.

1
Pickup installation.
Install the divided pickup following the same procedure used for normal installation.
2
Holder A and B installation
Place Holder A and Holder B so that the body is in between them, and secure by tightening the 5 x 20mm cap bolt. When doing so, Holder B should be on the front of the body and Holder A should be at the rear of the bass.
3
Install the controller.
Remove the three screws from the back of the controller and use them to secure the controller to Holder C.
4
Using the two 5 x 8mm cap bolts, secure Holder C to Holder A.
5
Adjust the height of Holder C so the rear of Holder C does not contact the bass strings. Place it over the bridge and secure. A controller cushion for affixing to the rear of Holder C is also included. Use it as necessary.
6
Secure the cable.
Affix the cord hook to the side of the bridge to secure the pickup cable so it does not get in the way when playing.
7
Finished!
