my esp kh202 came with esp pickups. when i looked at pictures and guitars at other stores they came with emg-hz pickups but mine just came with esps. r they the same thing?
#3
its a newer model got it about 3 weeks ago
the pickups just say esp so im not even sure what kind they r

EMG-HZ is a model of pickup under the brand EMG.

So...I have no idea what you mean by EMG's...do you mean EMG 81's? EMG 85's? EMG 60's? Some combination thereof?

EDIT:

Alright, the model of guitar you have, according to ESP's website, has ESP LH-301 pickups in both positions.

Hope that helps answer your question.
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*

no they are actually not quite as responsive as the emg. but it is an LTD so what do you expect? if you wanted super hot pups you should have bought an actual esp and not the lower end ltd.

I don't think they're the same. The older model came with emg-hzs and the newer ones come with esp pickups.

The KH-202 never had EMG Hz's. Only EMGESP's and ESP LH-301's. The LH-301's are probably what you have.

nothing if you like the lower end of a good guitar. its like saying whats wrong with a squire compared to a fender.

There's nothing wrong with a LTD, though I do think that if you're gonna get a signature guitar may as well get the "full fledged version" which is the KH-2 Neck Through I think, but that's just my opinion. I'm not a fan of signature guitars anyway.

Uhhh, not at all. LTD's are waaayyy nicer than Squiers.

As for the pickups, my KH-202 came with ESP pickups too. They are called ESP EMG HZ's.

You payed $700 for the KH-202? you got ripped off......anyway the older models have a painted neck and EMG HZ pickups and the newer ones have an unfinished neck with ****ty esp pickups

compared to an actual esp they are basically a squire. if you have ever played a nice esp you would know what i mean.

I got lucky and caught my KH in the short window when it has the unpainted neck and the older pickups, although now they've been swapped.

Oh, sorry I got confused.
#24
Actually, the lower end stock pickups, like the EMGESP's and LH-300's are nice, for the money that is. The new LH-301's that they're throwing in everything now, just plain suck.
