    Hey everyone....just wondering if it's totally against "bass law" if i took the original pickups and preamp out the MM Jazz and put in JVX pickups??? i love the EMG sound and don't think i would miss miss the original MM preamp... (who would!!!) has anyone done this or have thought about doing it????

    I never did the JVX's but I used to have EMG J's in my 76 Precision. Yes, I know...the store was out of P pickups when I got a J pickup added to it, and I thought it would look cool to have a Precision with Jazz pickups. Loved it back in the day.

    JVX's are quite awesome sounding pickups.

    Yeah i think I'm going to take that plunge and pick them up....i like the fact that the they are totally silent, have great headroom, and i have the option to add a preamp very easily later if i so desire. anyone else have any experience with them?
  7. They are my favorite EMG pickups, no hum, open sounding, like a 60s J pickup and not compressed like regular actives (at least to my ears)
