I want to remove the EMG pickups from my Viper-400, and replace them with a Seymour Duncan of some kind thats not as Heavy as the EMG's are. Would removing the EMG pickups alter the sound much and replacing them make much a difference sound wise?
what dont you like with your EMG's?
What amp you running them through as well?
They will make some difference...So if you're not using your EMG's you wanna sell 'em?
The viper was the first guitar i got. My taste have change and I dont like the really heavy metal music the viper is meant to play. So i was wondering if replacing the emg's would change its sound much at all to what i would like. like 90's rock and alternative music.
Im using a solid state amp right now (i know), but i plan on replacing that with a fender tube of some sort during the holidays.
Ahh there you go sir, try out your EMG's on a tube amp. See if you feel differently. You never know you might find you like them again. Might save yourself some cash.
