The original Fender® Jazz Bass* pickup is a long, tall, thin pickup. That's why it has such a distinctive tone. The winding length of the coil is about 6 inches per turn resulting in a pickup that has a high DC resistance compared to its inductance. Its aperture is small for long wavelengths so there's less low frequency punch and an accentuated mid-range howl. The EMG-J Pickups on the other hand, have a very low ratio of resistance to inductance that
increases the low frequency response yet the EMG-J still maintains the narrow aperture for that typical Jazz Bass® tone. Instead of the side by side Pole pieces the EMG-J uses a single-pole crescent shaped magnetic field to complement the radiused fingerboard. The result is a balanced output across the strings, and a linear attack from note to note. In addition to its standard four string capability The EMG-J can also be used with five string Bass's.
