i can't try it out before i buy so im trying to learn as much about the guitar before i dive in.

here's the page...

anybody ever played one of these?

only other pickups i have a good idea are the P90-esque pickups on my blueshawk, whatever humbuckers on my '01 gibby LPC, then the single coils and humbucker of my bandmates' strat.

how does a ceramic pickup compare to those?

thanks.

ceramic pickups are generally a little brighter, harsher, and slightly hotter than alnicos. it really goes from pickup to pickup, and assuming they were made for a hollow body, they should still be good for the type of music most hollow bodies shoot for, just with those characteristics.

im surprised that they are hotter.

wouldn't that make it more prone to feedback from a hollowbody?

anyway, thanks for the info.

No, hotter always doesn't mean more feedback.

like i said, they are still pickups made for a hollow body. they will be hotter than comparible alnicos, but i didnt say they were emg hot.

forgot to ask...

looking at the specs... would you say the agile is a better choice than an epiphone sheraton?

im also looking at a used epiphone sheraton and the guy said he upgraded the pickups to fender custom humbuckers. he's willing to let it go for $250.

so im trying to think which one of the 2, although, i still have to check the used sheraton in person.

pros: probably better pickups, u get to play it, no shipping costs

cons: build quality probably slightly higher on the agile

cosmetics, ur choice.

so i'll definitely check out the used sheraton then decide.

i like the cosmetics and design on the agile better.

thanks man.
