  1. How do you boys like these?
    I'm considering them for my jazz fretless.

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    I replaced the Carvin J99 pickups in my Carvin LB76 with a pair of J-45s. They totally transformed the sound of this axe!

    To my ear, the J-45s are very "hi-fi" and cover the entire sonic spectrum. They might be too hi-fi for a fretless, depending on your choice of strings and amplifier.

    I say go for them... but don't be surprised if you have to wait a while. I was told 4 weeks, but it was more like 9.
  3. Hi Chucko, nice see someone from the carvin forum here...!

    I got my J-45's a couple of weeks ago. Mine took about 4 weeks. I put them on my Jazz Fretless. Loving them.
