PostSubject: Do you use or like EMG's ?   Sun Jan 03, 2010 5:29 pm

Well i do use EMG pick ups and have for years now , I have them in my jackson kelly , Ibanez rg along with my 1979 firebrand gibson sg . Well about 3 weeks ago i happen to see some active pick ups on ebay that were new and cheap .. So i got a set for a older beater i had .. WOW , Great pick ups on the cheap ! ..If your a fan of EMG's ( Im a fan of the 60s and 85s ) You can get a set for less than half .. Check 'em out ..

Its a old peavey tracer , 1 hum 1 single . vol/tone / 5 way .. Im going to feel up some holes with bondo and make it a 1 hum / 1 vol guitar .. It had a floyd copy on it but im going to use a kahler spyder that i picked up on ebay , I went through it cleaned it up replaced the knife edges and the fine tuners . Its a very well made bridge . The neck was good and flat but it had 4 dead frets so i went and did a fret job . I have been doing that while its been cold . I took about 10 degrees off the profile of the neck , added 6505 frets leveled them up and it feels like a player now .. Kim got the guitar for $35 bucks and after im done i will have maybe $200 in it . I dont know if i want to use a Seymour Duncan Detonator or one of the INF's i have . This is going to be a tone monster ! I have a cracked Zildjian custom a that i have cut in to 1 inch strips . Im going to feel the single hole with , Then skin it with bondo . Now the paint . I have some ice pearl blue candy with a silver base but its a 3 day job to paint it and get it right . I also have some super flat camo paint , Brown , black , green , gray ,tan .Its used for guns mostly but i have used it on guitars before . You just clear the hell out of it .. But its all how i feel when i start on the body . If the body comes out great its blue candy , If there is anything i see wrong ....camo ..

A flat camo would look amazing on that, and I would say go with the Detonator, or, go with a Dimarzio Evolution. Alright, I am excited to see.

I hate EMG's, they sound way too good to play punk or grind with lol.

Gibson P-90's are my favorites, they sound good yet shitty at the same time. Very Happy

Little logic, yet so much, P-90's though, really? I NEVER expected them to be any good.

I hate active pickups, especially EMGs. They rob all the tone from your guitar and make all guitars have the sme compressed sound. Get with passive pickups.

Its all in what you like . I use both active and passive pickups , Its just what your playing . I do like p90s they have that old gibson grooving sound but there not for everything . Its like emg's There good for some stuff but not for everything .. A real hot passive pickup will work with just about everything .But its all up to the player .

I'm with Taxer. Actives just seem so lifeless to me.

I'm a total analog Nazi in general though... I've never owned an amp that wasn't tube.

Active pickups basically have a built-in preamp to modify their tone/EQ, instead of just running straight to the amp from the pickup.
