There is but one thing that I would change about this beast, regular passive humbuckers, with black covers.

I think that you meant to say "Het Set".

As beautiful as those are, no. Actives just don't appeal to me.

Thanks guys, for all the replies!
As far as logging hours,
I dont do that at all anymore. But i have made so man of them, i can do this in a matter of 5 or 6 days at a couple hours of work a day max.

Viban,
What exactly dont you like about actives? They are amazing for metal and the cleans are every bit as good as passives.

I think it's just how overused they are, I prefer something new and unique in pretty much all I do so maybe I'm just tired of seeing every other metal band 81/85's and 81/60's.

I dont really know now to respond to that... You dont like them, just because a lot of people use them?
There isnt really such thing as a unique pickup these days. Just go for what sounds good, thats the point of a pickup.

Well I really just meant EMG's, not actives as a whole. I don't like the way EMG's sound. I can't really speak for all actives as I haven't tried them all, or even many of them. For sure I can say Ibanes actives and EMG's sound like ass IMO, but not much than that. I've always been a passive man regardless though.

As far as no such thing as a unique pickup, That's why I'm gonna start getting into winding my own so I can fool around with different things and get something truly different.

Alright, fair enough. I know quite a few who dont like EMGs specifically. You like what you like.

I just got this wired up. It has quite a bit of attack. Its puts out a lot more higher end than my other guitar, but it sounds good. cleans are very clear.

Oh wow, so you could build several at a time and turn out a few guitars a week. That's pretty impressive! Do you sell them?
