Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

Well, depends on what sound I want to achieve and what amp is being used. EMG humbuckers, imo, only make sense if you have an amp with medium gain levels (typical example: JCM800) and want to push it a bit more, perhaps in combination with a booster pedal.
For any other applications, I prefer passives most of the time. The EMG single coils are yum though.

Favourite pup personally: P-90s. Preferably ones with relatively little output.

Um... are you looking for advice or pup suggestions or anything?
81 in neck is pretty good. I haven't mixed them in bridge.
Epiphone Les Paul (Modded with 2 passive pickups and an EMG81)
Yamaha RG guitar w/ Floyd Rose
Rogue Acoustic

BlackHeart BH5 Tube Amp

Danelectro Metal. Digitech Bad Monkey, Digitech CF-7, Crybaby Wah, Danelectro EQ.
81/60 is the only one I can really stand, more the 60 then the 81. I've never been a huge fan of Active EMG's.. Though I honestly really dig the passive HZ ones. They just sound so much better, to me. Personal opinion, so FLAMESHIELD (If needed)
