So I have a few guitars, all but one having passive pickups. The one that does not have passive pickups is an explorer with EMG pickups. All of the passive pickups sound nice and heavy for the stuff I play but the EMGs just sound weak and floppy. I then proceeded to get the Het Set and rewired the thing to have the same thing happen. I am playing through a peavey 6505+ combo with a mxr 10 band and a bbe sonic stomp going through the loop.

EMG active, check the battery. maybe it's dying and creating wonky sound
I have Washburn guitars 'Maverick Series' and bass 'Bantam Series' and a few pedals and amps, but man I wish to have more patience and drive practicing my playing, if it's equal to the modding itch, then I'm golden.

check pickup height, make sure it's wired correctly.

Ryan from RNA Music, Texas, has an FB account, just ask him because I know he installed his own EMG pickups in his guitar.. he is very helpful guy.

I figured it out. Epiphone being the wonderful company they are, didnt connect the wiring correctly. The Het Set didnt come with a toggle so I used the old one and the wires werent properly connected. Sounds like metal now.
