Product# 712852

A set of two bass pickups with a combo of vintage and new design ideas to deliver classic tone with modern preamp technology.

The EMG JVX set-of-two pickups uses a mixture of old, new, and late-model design ideas and was developed to deliver the classic tone and look of the traditional Jazz Bass. It still maintains the "faded" attack of the offset pole pieces in combination with EMG's lowest-noise preamp. The EMG JVX bass pickup should appeal to the "retro" in you while the coil and electronic design will convince you that this is a replacement pickup to be considered seriously.

The EMG JVX bass pickup and other X-series pickups provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG JAX bass pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.

EMG JVX bass pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System, a split shaft volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, plus screws and springs.

Appeal to the retro side of your bass' sound while taking advantage of modern design when you order today.

Comments about EMG JVX Bass Pickup Set:

I put these jvx pickups in my fender mexican bass. All wires plugged in for easy install. Note - One wire on the tone needs to be well, upside down. The vol and tone knobs jacked all the way up for battery to fit. After that its play time.
The tone is clear and bright, The tone control has many positions not just high, middle, low. I installed a kahler bridge with a wammy bar. Sustain is amazing. The band loved the sound. Cuts threw the mix without having amp wars with the guitar player. And most important, I can hear myself perfect. My mexican Jazz Bass now sounds better than many basses I have played. Customer service is the best.

Jazz Bass Only?!?

By ClasRoc85

Comments about EMG JVX Bass Pickup Set:

My only grip as mentioned earlier is the length of the pickup leads. Had these had been just an inch longer they would have fit my bass.
If you own a Fender Jazz Bass or very close clone with the same control cavity and distance from the pickups than this pickup set will work. NOTE: The lead provided from the pickups to the volume pots are made to fit exactly with that specific distance in mind. I also think that it would have been nice to have this pre-installed on a Fender Jazz Bass control plate.
I must say the components included are top notch. Very solid connectors, pots and input jack.
Had this pickup set had long enough leads to accomidate my bass the value would be comparable to that of Seymour Duncans active set. However, this set doesn't require soldering which is better for the novice DIYer to assemble.

Awesome pickups!

Comments about EMG JVX Bass Pickup Set:

These are now my favorite jazz pickups! They are completley silent and sound great live and in the studio! The install was also a breeze!
The build quality is great!
They are a bit expensive, but well worth it! You'll save $$ by being able to install them on your own!

Great Pickups!

By Stickman-RM0bt

Comments about EMG JVX Bass Pickup Set:

After trying numorous pickups(Dp123's, basslines, fender, Nordy's) in my Fender Jazz, I have finally found the sound I was looking for. They are very open and have a very focused, tight bottom end and nice crisp highs with a classic growl from the bridge pickup. These pup's are dead quiet! They were very easy to install (outstanding directions)...the only issue was trying to get the battery to fit in the bass, but it does fit and everything works and sounds perfectly. IMO, These are by far the best sounding pickups I have ever heard. Great job EMG!
