    I haven't but normally my experiences with changing from A5 to A2 is like this..

    A2....Slightly more mids from the pickup
    Slight loss in overall pickup tightness
    Less highs and the loss of tightness in the bass
    Looser feel and vibe from the A2 magnet

    I Like both magnets but it depends on the pickup and the application?Do a search as I Know there are some folks that have done the change to their JB.

    Amps: 66 Fender BF Pro Reverb Combo,1973 50 Watt Marshall Head,Marshall 4x12 A/V Cab,Vox ToneLab LE,Vox VTH Valvetronix 120 Head,Vox AD 2x12 Cab,Roland Cube 20X

    Guitars: Several Stratocasters,2 Fender Telecasters,Gibson SG Standard,Tokai Love Rock Les Paul,Dean Acoustic.

        yes, i used a JB with an A2 a long time ago. with heavy distortion, the leads were very smooth and long sustaining. HOWEVER, it was too soft and fluffy all around for me. the low 5th chords were NOT very well defined.
