Those are EMG HZ's, They're the EMG passive pickups, I think when people say EMG's don't go well in basswood they're talking about the Active EMG's like the 81, 85 etc....

And I think some people find them too trebley for basswood that's why they advise against them, not sure though

because those are HZ's, HZ's shouldnt even be counted as EMG's

^ I don't know why everyone seems to dislike the HZ's, I tried them before and thought they were pretty good

Yeah, the new ESP SV's have alder bodies with EMG 81's. It's said alot around here though that the pickups are very trebley and need something with a darker tone (Like Mahogany) To balance them out
