You know how most Ibanez's have crappy pickups? Well Ibanez just came out with a new guitar with EMG's, it doesn't say what kind though. Check it out! Are they any good?http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RGT5EX-Electric-Guitar?sku=512221

no actives or at least not emg's 81 85 casue these have colored tags those are white; I'm guessing those are EMG - HZ's
So is that a good guitar or not, I mean are the pickups better than normal Ibanez RG Stock Pickups?
Umm even if they were real emg's, it's a basswood body still.In addition it's an Edge pro II bridge which sucks, ibanez won't get it right, if they put those emg's in one of the mahogany prestiges with the wizard prestige neck and edge pro it'd be kick ass, but it's in the basswood body which won't sound very good, go with a hellraiser FR, same price, mahogany, real emg's, OFR.
Ok, I thought maybe they got a little smarter lol, well it was worth asking, thanks.
^ There's always other pickups to put in the Ibanez's, lots of people use Dimarzios, Duncans, but the Emgs aren't going to sound that great and for the price there are much better guitars out there.
