Jazz project EMG's

  1. I think that I have decided on the EMG Select series for pickups in the CAD/CAM Jazz project. This decision was made mainly for cost reasons and the fact that they come in matched pairs. Have any of you used these replacement pickups and what is your opinion of their tone, and their noise factor.

    I don't think it unusual to make a pickup selection before knowing too much about them. Since this is a totally custom project and there isn't any way of telling what tone the body and neck will introduce, I sort of like the element of surprise this offers. All basses have different tones, even identical makes, so we'll just have to wait and see.

    I have 2 EMG J selcets (active) in a cheap Hamer Slamer Series bass I have. I like the added beef they give to the bass.
