Fretless Jazz Pickups
i have a fretless jazz bass equipped with DiMarzio Noiseless pickups and i thought of upgrade the pickups to one of these:
Delano JMVC-4 FE M2
im looking for the jaco growl
what do you think???
I have the DiMarzio Model Js in my fretless, you cannot go wrong with them IMO. Growl and low mids for days..
The EMG JVX are awesome based on this review from Ed Friedland and very versatile.
Seymour Duncan rewound Jaco's pickups back in the day, he models his antiquity II pickups directly from Jaco's original ones.
I'm in a similar mood.
I have a MIJ Jaco Jazz and have had the neck epoxy'd.
I have NJ4SE pickups and an Audere Pre-amp. Otherwise it's stock!!!! : )
Anyways, I'm still getting a slight phased sound from this set-up, which I don't like and I really only ever use the bridge pickup so my Audere is a bit overkill (I wanted a blend).
I want the purest Jaco tone possible, I'm thinking of ditching the Audere going back to passive and installing NJ4s or SD Antiquity IIs. I hear hand-wound and overwound give the best antique sounding PUs plus there's loads of boutique pickup makers out there and it's difficult to choose. I don't mind trying a few.
I also have the js in my fretless, coupled with the John East Retro J preamp and tapewounds-wow.
Perhaps consider the preamp-very versatile and passive selectable.
