I just went to their site and checked the pickups. That's strange to me since the Model Js
are known to be a high output pickup. The Area Js
are supposed to be a medium ouput pickup. Also, the output rating on the Ultra Js
are 250! I had a set about ten years ago and they didn't seem much hotter than MIA Fenders.
This brings me to another discussion. Remember the well known Bass Player Magazine Pickup shootout? The gave Model Js
an output of 5 and Ultra Js
an output of 4.5.
Can anyone clarify this? 250 compared to 150 is such a huge difference.
