    Here we have EMG's JV Pickup set - active Jazz pickups that are voiced for more "vintage" tone. I've never cared for EMG pickups, but these are different - warmer, I guess. I dig 'em but I want to try something different on my fretless.

    The link below tells more about them. Mine comes with a pre-wired control plate and I'm pretty sure the previous owner added a treble/bass stacked pot. Because the stacked pot appears to be another EMG product that was wired in - possibly the "BTC" control? I have no way of really verifying this, and I've already removed the pickups and electronics, but the control layout should be: vol/vol/treble-bass stack.

    Requires a 9V battery. Everything sold as pictured, including the mounting screws. Control plate has a couple scratches. No knobs included. The pickups have solderless connections but you'll still need to solder your ground wire.


    $75 shipped for everything.
