I have a 5 string jazz and I'm thinking about replacing my Fender SCN/Aguilar OBP3 setup. has anybody here tried the EMG J5 pickups? I like the Marcus type of tone and on my other J basses (which have preamps) I don't have to do much boosting to get that sound. The J5s are active but they only have a passive tone control. To get Bass and Treble boost EMG sells an addon module. Would I still need the active EQ or do the pickups sound modern enough without it?
