Squier Deluxe V + Stock Pre + EMG
am looking at such a config as I write this ... (EMG J, not JX, etc....
It works fine, with R-value changes that line6man indicated.
Mine exhibits a low noise floor and very little hiss even when treble maxed. That was unexpected considering the disparaging comments that some have made about the preamp quality (maybe pre assembly is shared with some Corts? - can't remember).
... my bass doesn't know enough songs ....
