So, I bought this knackered Spector NS-2a, seller told upper part of electronics didnt work... Turned out the D-G side of the EMG P splitcoil didnt work. These pickups were grounded to the core anyway so I thought I have a go at replacing them. I opened the control cavity and found a haz labs pre The jazz PU works on all strings but sounds faded AND a little bit distorted when plucked hard. Now I'm wondering if it's the pickup or perhaps the pre that isnt doing its thing correctly. My original plan was to buy a set of EMG PJX's and they come with their own pre ofcourse, but after finding out that there was a haz labs inside I want the EMG's on that. However (sigh...) I would need to cut of part of their solderless system and if the original pre turns out bad I cant use the EMG pre anymore... What would be my best bet on this?
