I just bought a yamaha RGX 612ma for dirt cheap,(needs some minor repairs) and im wondering if its worth it to swap the yamaha floating trem. for a floyd rose and if i should swap the bridge pickups for an emg 81, im mostly into metal, rock stuff, i do like emg pickups but wondering if the current ones are good enough.
active pups remove almost all tone so go for stereo-type metal i say be more creative ;D
The Yamaha floating trems are known to be good so I wouldn't go buying another one unless there is something wrong with it. As for pickups, look in further than just EMG's. The current ones will be ok but look at Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio as well
The current ones are certainly good enough, and no, don't change the bridge.
