Blue velvet vs. Jem single coils
The HS-2 is ***NOT*** the "JEM Single". *
(Once again) here's how the single coils in the JEM guitars goes:
•If you have PAF-Pros, the single coil is custom-made to match the PAF Pro's.
•If you have Evolutions, the single coil is custom-made to match the Evolutions.
•If you have Breeds, the single coil is custom-made to match the Breeds.
Each matched s/c is different than the other. *They are custom built for Ibanez (for the JEM guitars only) and are NOT available to the general public.
Example: the s/c from a DBK won't match up very well when dropping it in an FP or *VWH. *
And vice-versa: the s/c from a VWH won't match the h/b's in an LNG or a DBK.
That being said, the HS-2 is a close match to the s/c's found in PAF-Pro-equipped JEM's.
