Are the Emg 81TW/89 as gud as the 81 and 85's? In terms of powerrrr, gainnn and maybe clean sounds too..

By the way if anyone knows about schecter hellraiser c1 fr's, are their anything bad about them? I havent heard anything bad about them. These have the 81TW and 89's.

Thanks for the help

Schecter is famous for bringing high quality components together for a reasonable price. You'll be happy with it. I have the 81/89s and think they are better than the 81/85 because of their versatility. They sound the same imo, they just have coil tap

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

The c-1 is a great guitar. There also is a ton of options with these things. You should go try some out before you buy. Make sure you try one with passive super rock 2's in them. Those pickups sound better than EMG's. They are in the c-1 exotic star if you can find one of those to try. Very nice pickups, very nice guitar.

With the emg's they sound good too but I'd rather have passive in that mahogany wood. They also have it fixed or Floyd rose. However you want it. I prefer fixed but if you want to use a whammy bar go for the Floyd rose.

I've owned a lot of guitars over the years and honestly my c-1 exotic star is my favorite guitar. Even over many other more expensive ones. The thing just sounds perfect. The neck pickup is beautiful and the bridge pickup is amazing. The only guitar I've ever purchased that I did not have to do fret work or change the pickups.

Emg's still sound clear on solid state amps I have owned although I mostly use tube amps nowadays. It depends. I mean having an EMG or good pickups on a solid state will be better than having muddy pickups. I prefer passive pickups as I said in the last post but they have to be good ones. When I first started upgrading from crappy stock pickups, I started using emg's. I was using solid state some back then too and it sounded a lot better and I was able to play while hearing all my notes clearly.
