The JV uses a mixture of old, new, and late model design ideas and was developed to deliver the classic tone and look of the tradition Jazz Bass. It still maintaines the "faded " attack of the offset pole pieces in combination with our lowest noise preamp. The JV should appeal to the "retro " in you, while the coil and electronic design will convice you that this is a pickup to be seriously considered. The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. X's are best described as briding the gap between passive and active tone.
