Hey guys, i'm been looking at lefty Agile 8 strings.

Now the active version has an EMG808 pickup, but has only a volume knob.
Now, i'm sure it won't be too versatile.

On the other hand, the dual pickup one has a tone knob, volume knob and pickup switch, but the pups are passive.

Active one: http://www.rondomusic.com/intrepidpro828mnocleft.html

Passive one: http://www.rondomusic.com/intrepidp...28mnbbleft.html

Now, my questions are:

1. Are the stock pups on the passive one brutal enough to match the crazy tone on the active one?

2. Are the stock pups on the passive one reasonably versatile?

3. Will they sound good and pristine on the clean channel, irrespective of the amp i currently have, since i'm upgrading to a Bugera 333XL.

Thanks.

The passives in the Intrepid absolutely destroy the 808's in every aspect. They are far more dynamic, have cleans that are 100 times better and will give you all the brutality that you need. I had a dual passive Intrepid for a while, and while I'm a BKP nut I never considered swapping those pickups. They are great. Also if you want my opinion go with the bolt on model. The ash body and maple neck of the bolt on IMO add a ton more clarity to the tone than the mahogany bodied pro.
