    I have a Mexican jazz bass and i need to know what pickups does it have. I'm asking because i want to change it to emg. And which emg pickups should i buy ?

    Note:I play metal and i'm looking for perfect J-bass pickups,if there is..

    Depends what model Mexican Jazz you have .. if it is a MIM Standard, and pre-2000 you will currently have two pickups the same length .. both neck pups ... so you will need to buy accordingly ... otherwise it does not matter, as line6 suggests ... just quick measure to make sure that the bridge pup is about 3/8" longer than the neck pup and you are good to go ... all other MIM Jazz models use the longer bridge pup configuration .. of course you could simply dremel the bridge cutout to fit the longer pup, and then you could use anything ...
