    Hello anyone?
     
  3. Sorry no I've still got the stock pups in my MIM jazz deluxe 5. Which EMGs are you looking at? The standard ones I am familiar with have a preamp already built into them. They do have passive ones but I'm not sure they make ones that will fit the spacing of a Fender 5.

    Maybe someone else has a better answer.

    Actually my plan is to use the preamp with a pj emg setup in a Fender Heartfield Prophecy II.

    No. I hate the EMG sound.

    I also wasn't happy with the factory "noiseless' pickups either.

    Eventually went with a set of (now discontinued) SCN pickups. Absolutely LOVE it now. Hum-free and killer sound! (Didn't cost an arm and a leg either)
