Yah, You can't take the shield off without destroying the P'up itself, as there are electronics that would be totally ripped to shreds.

However: EMG's use blade magnets, so they would look like a hotrail/X2N/Dimebucker/500XL

You can't take the cover off an EMG without breaking the pickup because EMG fills the thing with black epoxy. I did break one apart to have a look and each coil was wound with 42awg wire, each coil used an alnico 5 bar magnet for it's core that is similar to the bar magnet in a regular humbucker, and then there is a cream coloured plastic bobbing that surrounds the bar magnet. Then you have the little preamp/op amp that takes care of your output boost and tone shaping.

EMG's have output, not tone, Two different aspects.

O cool. I know it would destroy the pickup but i just wanted to see if anyone knew. If you like the EMG sound then theyre perfect for u. In metal isnt all u want is !!!OUTPUT!!!! isnt the more output u have mean the bigger your balls are?

:-D

If you're referring to semen output, maybe. Otherwise, no.
