I just wanted to take a second and comment on customer support from EMG. I just put a set of EMG J1 pickups in my 95 Warwick Thumb and an EMG BQC control preamp. The Thumb has 3 holes for pots and the standard set up with the control and the system is 4 pots. I found an EMG stacked volume and smoked 3 of them trying to get the wiring right. I had an extra ground and had it at 18 volts. I called EMG and Rick Hunt said he is their only tech. He had me send everything back to him and tested everything and then gave me a new pot and soldered it with a clip so it went right into the BQC module and did it and had it back to me in days. He is amazing and I can’t thank EMG enough just outstanding. Spoke right to him and he was responsive with emails and communication and located in CA. BTW I have the same EMGs in my Warwick Streamer Stage II and they kill. The set up so far sounds great in the Thumb too but I am now an EMG superfan. Great company!! Another note he recommends not wiring EMG preamps 18 volts. He said it does nothing and only creates a risky situation for frying stuff. He said if you want more headroom or more anything buy the "X" series pickups. I thought that odd as many guys including me wire EMG 18 volts. I never will again..
