    I'm thinking of upgrading my Fender JP 90's pickups and I'd like to bring out a more growley J sound rather than a beefer P sound. I've looked at EMG and DiMarzio because they sell prewired JP sets. Anyone have a strong opinion about these, or any other manufacturer?
     
  2. I love my pj emgs, but they are known for their clarity and completeness of tone rather than their growl.
     
  3. If you want growl get DiMarzio
     
  4. Just get a DiMarzio Model J and leave the stock Precision pickup in there. I had a pair of Model Js in a Mexi Jazz, and they were the shiznit.
