The EMG 40JV5 is our JV pickup for 5 string bass housed in a 40 Extended series cap. It is mixture of old and new, utilizing pole pieces, rather than a bar magnet, and EMG's active circuitry. Developed to deliver the classic tone of a vintage Jazz Bass without the noise often associated with vintage passive pickups. This pickup maintains the "faded" attack of the offset pole pieces that many players prefer in combination with our lowest noise preamp. The 40JV5 will appeal to the player looking for a "retro" vibe in their 5 string bass. The pickup measures 4 inches (102mm) and is intended for 5 string basses that have a standard string spacing.
