Custom Shop Jazz Bass with Noiseless pickups?

    Hi. Im looking forward to buy this bass, i always wanted a good jazz bass, and its at a really good price. But those pickups dont seem original in a Custom Shop to me. Its supposed to be a "Custom Classic Jazz Bass" This are the specs:

    Ash BodyBolt-on maple neck
    21 medium-jumbo fret rosewood fingerboard
    Four-on-one-side deluxe lightweight tuning machines
    STB bridge
    Custom Noiseless pickups
    Four black control knobs (v, blend, 3-band EQ, switching blend)

    My questions are:

    Are those pickups original to the bass?
    Any info on those pickups?
    Is it true that there are Noiseless, and Custom Noiseless pickups?
    Is this an active bass?
    What does it say on the four pots?
    Is there any web page where i can look up the original specs, to see if they match whats right now on the bass?
    What do you think would be the sound of the bass?

  2. Thank you, thats the info i was looking for!

    May be i´m asking too much, but i would like to be able to hear these pickups. Any ideas? I tried to find something in youtube, but i couldn't.

    Anyway, Thank you so much Mr mmbongo!!!

    All the Custom Classic Jazz Basses come with those pickups and they sound phenomenal. I think they are very under rated pickups. I love my Custom Classic Jazz...You will not be disappointed!

    Everything about that bass appears to be original.

    The pre amp is active.
