EMG 81/81 Who uses it? I think I'm the only one who really uses it.

kirk hammet, richard kruspe well atleast their signature models use them

I use the B.C. Rich BDSM humbuckers that my guitar came with.... I don't care what any B.C. Rich hater says, this pickups can produce some wicked sounds.

There is no best pick up combo that works for all situations, stock pickups on a strat can beat the crap out of EMG's or duncans on a wolfgang depending on the other aspects of your setup.

SD JB/59 is versatile setup for most styles
Dimarzio Evo 2 and evolution neck is a great combo

but my personal favorites in both actives and passive are
Seymour Duncan AHB-1 blackouts it's tone is more open than the EMG 81

As for passive i like the Dimarzio D-activators x/PAF Pro combo.

i agree with this up to the point where stock strat pick ups can beat other pick ups. thats silly. there is no real right or wrong combinition. its music. you do as you please to suit what YOU want to play. unless yourw worried about being in a tacky cover band, dont bother with who plays what. find your own sound.
stay lit

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
