    has anyone tried the p/jazz pickup set from emg,thinking of them with their eq prewired kit for my mia jazz
  2. I have them in my cort action bass and they sound really cool. If you want a clean, clear, tight sound you are on the right track, but if you want a deep sound you may be unsatisfied with them.
  3. Been using a emg p/j set for about 8 years. They offer great, uncolored sound that reflects the sound of your bass. They don't growl like a single coils, but they can bite when played aggressively.

    I have them on my Ibanez and they sound alot better than the stock pickups. I want a little more growl than they have, but they sound very good and are very clear, if you like that

    I have EMG's in most of my basses. IMO, they're the best.

    I have P/J's in my my 3 Sprctor's & if it growled any more, I'd thing they were tiger's or something. ;)
