EMG makes single coils too.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

sounds like it'd be kinda complex putting the active EMGs in place of the humbuckers and then leaving the passive single coil in the middle but it could be done. you'd have to have a completely seperate set of knobs for the single coil im pretty sure.

Why EMG's? Yeah, they have amazing attack but you pay for that with versatility. You get better range and a lot less complication (and cost) with good passives. Most of the hard stuff can come from a Super Distortion or X2N at the bridge and something warmer like an Air Norton or a Breed in the neck position. These are the DiMarzio models but Duncans make equivalent ones, I'm sure.
I have quite similar Guitars with EMG and passive pups, and the difference, for metal is only in loudness. The passives give just as good a tone but are better for clean and warm sounds.
I pick up my guitar and play

Don't bother wasting your money, there's no point getting EMGs or any other aftermarket pickups if that Spider in your profile is the only amp you have.
