Noisy Fender Power Jazz Bass Special
I have an problem with my Fender Power Jazz Bass Special (Japan, 1980something). It has passive pickups, active electronics, and I do remember that there was always some noise when turning up the treble. The instrument is in original shape.
I had my luthier change the jack, and after that was done, the noise had even increased, God knows why. It´s really annoying and would be impossible for recording. Something has to be done.
My question now is, should I better replace only the electronics and leave the pickups? Or would it be more elegant to change the entire electronics for an EMG PJ-X-Set, which comes with Pickups and electronics.
I do not know if the instrument is some kind of collector´s piece which absolutely should stay original. And I do not know how "good" the original pickups are compared to EMGs.
I´d be very glad if someone could give me advice.
Thanks in advance, alexander
