The EMG-JV was a part of EMG’s 1993 renaissance visit to the "retro" vault. The JV uses a mixture of the old, new, and late model design ideas. The interface: original "offset" Alnico 5 pole pieces. The coils come from the EMG-J design, while the preamp is the newer ultra-low noise (>-100db) design adapted for bass from the EMG-SV.
EMG developed the EMG-JV to deliver the classic tone and look of the traditional Jazz Bass and maintain the "faded" attack of the offset pole pieces in combination with our lowest noise preamp. The EMG-JV should appeal to the "retro" in you, while the coil and electronic design will convince you that this is a pickup to be seriously considered.
Tone modeling isn’t used in the JV, the natural resonance of the coils and their mix has the typical peak of the original Fender Jazz Bass. This could be just what you’re looking for in a fretless pickup. The JV also features EMG’s Quik-Connect cable system so you can swap it with any other J model pickup we make now or develop in the future.
