    I had a EMG set J in my MIM fender, now i want to find another set for my project bass so I'm looking for used pickups.

    anyway, i couldn't find EMG set on the net. but there's a guy want to sell me two EMG LJ (bridge pickups)

    I looked into EMG's website and found there're no difference between the J(neck) and the LJ(bridge) pickup unless the dimensions.

    is that so ???
    so they have a same specs ???

    anyone know ??

  3. The LJ is longer, that's all. On the original J the bridge pickup is longer. On the MIM J the bridge pickup is the same length as the neck pickup. If I were you, unless you plan never to change pickups, I'd wait for a standard short/long set to turn up on eBay. Routing is forever.
