I kinda like my emgs on my futura, but what are the Blackouts like? Ive heard great things, but are they really better than EMGs?
Yeah, it basically whatever you like. They sound great, it all depends on what you want your sound to be.
ive never played the blackouts specifically, but in my experience, duncans tend to give a little more versatility than EMG's. but yes, purely a preference thing. (i do know that mick from slipknot is now using blackouts, if your a slipknot fan)
Try a guitar with each, then decide for yourself.
It's all preference so play a guitar with each and decide for yourself.
I think that EMG 60 neck with Blackouts bridge (running 18 volts) is good.
