hi, i have just brought a gibson les paul studio in alpine white and its is awesome. before buying this guitar i also brough a set of EMG 81 & 85................. should i switch out the stocks 490R and 498T? i play metal, punk and some classic rock, and would be going with the 18v EMG mod if switching.
Please give me some ideas
Ill admit emgs don't have a good clean tone but a good reverb kind of makes up for it and it has an ok crunch tone. Although, passives are better in most respects for clean and crunch. But emgs hands down are insane for metal.
If you want cleans, just get a 60 for the neck.
