The JX pickup at the bridge boasts tight, mid-rich punch with a more modern sound.

Round, vintage tone from the PX split-coil pickup

Turn to the ESP LTD FB-4's active PX pickup for warm, vintage P Bass tone. Its character is round and bouncy, while maintaining plenty of articulation too. The active design gives you increased headroom and ultra-low noise performance.

Focused, modern tone from the JX single-coil pickup

A perfect complement to the PX pickup, the JX pickup at the bridge position gives you a more modern sound with plenty of midrange richness. Any Sweetwater bassist will tell you the jazz bass sound is perfect for cutting through a dense mix, adding punch and impact to the round fullness of the PX pickup. Best of all, EMG's active preamp gives you more headroom and lower noise than a passive single-coil pickup can provide.
