How would an EMG 85/81 combination sound like on an SG Standard through a Vox AD120VTX? I'm thinking of buying some

basically not very good since the Vox isn't tube/valve amp
but they sound kickass metal with some nice Mesa or Peavey tube amp

plus the EMGs are active so you would have to make more space for the electronics inside the guitar (assuming the previous ones were passive)
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

I was thinking it wouldn't sound as good as on an all tube amp but the AD120VTX is a pretty nice amp so I dunno :/

well ESP Vipers do come with EMGs so I quess it's possible
or are the vipers more thicker than normal SGs?
I don't know since I havn't played vipers

I use an AX with EMGs - same size, same thickness, basically a take on the SG concept, and all the electronics (just the battery, really - EMGs have less wires than your average 4-conductor humbucker) fit loosely inside, even after drilling a spare hole and putting the PA2 in.

I don't see a reason why SG with EMGs will not work out - a mahogany setneck is just asking for a pair of those. Don't know if you'll get the tones you expect from them through a modelling amp, however.

Don't know anything about how it would play, but that sounds pretty sweet.
