Hi. As my profile says I live in Brazil, and it's a lot more difficult (and expensive) to get good gear here. Looking for replacement pickups for my MIM jazz I finally found EMGs. I didnt see them, but the guy said to me it´s the JV-LJV model, with exposed polepieces. I took a look at www.emginc.com and there it says there are two models for jass bass: the "J" and the "JV" (Vintage?). Can you guys help-me giving your opinion about these two?? YES, I know both are active, I´m planning to run without active preamp at first. YES, I did a lot of searches at TB and no one seems to mention wich type of EMG they have! Thank you !!
