AHB-1 is an active pickup, and the SH-8 is passive.

Not a great mix, it will be... interesting, getting them in the same guitar lol.

If you want actives, dual AHB-2's or an EMG 81 in the bridge and 85/60 in the neck.


What kind of bands are you hopeing to sound similar to?
ProTone Pedals: Attack Overdrive
Fractal Audio: AxeFX 2
Engl: Fireball 60
Zilla: Fatboy 2x12
Carvin: DC700

installing a passive and an active pickup in the same guitar requires a lot of work, and even then the mismatch in output will be a b*tch to deal with. if i were you, i would just go with actives.

Well, slipknot use SD AHB's (mick) and EMG 81 and 60 (Root)

And Machine head use EMG 81 and 60

So, emg 81 (bridge) and 60 (neck) would go well lol
