I've heard them in action, and honestly, they're not bad at all. They'd probably be my choice for passive EMGs. But I'd get actives anyway.

They are ok but if your looking for some passive pickups look at seymour duncan rather than EMG. EMG specialise in active pickups where as seymour duncan tend to be more passive

Right, go for the Duncans instead of EMGS. Another options would be DiMarzio (a little bit more expensive. but better imo) or Bareknuckle pickups (a LOT more expensive, but like the Holy Grail)

Most seymour duncans pickups are amazing i use them and love them! I'm not so sure about passive EMG's. I've also heard a lot about bareknuckle being pretty awesome!

i have a set that came stock in my Schecter which is my main guitar. I've used that guitar to play country, blues, rock, 80's thrash, metalcore, contemporary christian, and some classic rock. I like them but it really depends on your gear. I have my Vypyr so i can get most tones i need. I'm suprised no one asked this, but
What guitar are they going in?
What kind of music do you play?
Could you name some specific artists?
What's your current amp?
People could give you better opinions/suggestions if you provide this
