The EMG X-Series JV Pickup Set is a vintage-style set of active pickups for J-Bass. This set includes both pickups, a prewired Volume/Tone control set, and all necessary parts and hardware for installation.
The JV uses a mixture of old, new, and late model design ideas and was developed to deliver the classic tone and look of the traditional Jazz Bass. It still maintains the "faded" attack of the offset pole pieces in combination with our lowest noise preamp. The JV should appeal to the "retro" in you, while the coil and electronic design will convince you that this is a pickup to be seriously considered. The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. X's are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
Package includes EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect Solderless Install System; split shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws and springs.
