[Heeeey everyone!

Ive been playing guitar for like 3 years, and ive learnt tons of theory etc etc and can play songs, make up songs or w.e. but i never really learnt about the gear, such as pickups, frets and necks etc and i was wondering.....

WOULD AN EMG 81 AT THE BRIDGE GO ON MY IBANEZ RGR321EX-BK(http://www.thomann.de/gb/ibanez_rgr321exbk.htm) AND SOUND BETTER THAN IT WITH THE INFINITY 2 THAT IS CURRENTLY THERE AT THE MOMENT

ALL FEEDBACK AND RECCOMENDATIONS WILL BE APPRECIATED

BTW I PLAY STYLES OF MUSIC SUCH AS BRING ME THE HORIZON, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE AND OTHER METALCORE/METAL BANDS

dont quote me, but im sure it would fit easily, due to the fact that they are both humbucker pickups. In my opinion ,emgs are WAY better than infinitys. however, emgs are ACTIVE pickups, so you would have to route a spot for the batterys and preamp, correct?

For the type of music you play, probably
Don't expect to get anything warm sounding from the ceramic magnets tho, or a great clean tone

Thats why I dislike EMGs
#10
my only comment is it doesn't matter if you stick emgs on a telecaster, a bc rich, a jackson, or a plank of wood, it will ALWAYS sound the same. go for something else.
whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

He came to a horrible end... but a beautiful finish.

I say that EMG's are garbage and you should buy some good DiMarzio's and be an actual guitar player.

Whats with all the EMG hating? They are pickups, everything serves a purpose in the right circumstances. Get over it.

This is a very candid but totally honest post. EMG's should IMO should only be used
in cheaper guitars where the woods tone is not a factor.

I have to highlight your fonts when I read your posts... the plum blends into the grey background.

Waffles... I like my waffles with butter... lots and lots of butter... then strawberry jam, chocolates and lots of whipped double cream and mango slices on the side.

True but then I don't like the tone of certain pups also or artists or amps and I don't go around bashing them. To each their own I guess.

At least your plum is just hardly noticeable and doesn't rape our eyes.
