about the pickups...
in Europe, in the '97 catalog, the JPM 100 B, the JPM 100 P2 and the JPM 100 P3 were all available, and listed to have a Norton Lite as bridge pickup.
In the '98 catalog, the JPM 100 P2 , P3 and P4 were available, but listed with the Air Norton pickup.
In '99, the P2 and P4 were available, once again with the Air norton.
As far as I know (i asked someone at DiMarzio), these are the same pickups which changed names during 1997.
Anyway, my JPM 100 B has got a "Norton Lite", and the JPM 100 P4 '99 a friend of mine has, has got EXACTLY the same sound that mine, although its pickup is named "Air Norton"
Hey Paul, I also am a fanatic of the JPM series, and my life job is Webmaster... wouldn't you need some help for your site? I' like to !!! *
