i have an Ibanez RG4EX1 and i like the pickups that are in it but i also want to change them. So i am thinking of going with 81-85 Emgs and some sort of strat style mid pickup. i am wondering if this will work because i dont know much about pickups and but i know that emg 81's-85's are active pickups and was just wondering if this set up will work...
Mixing actives with passives is hard as they use completely different setups.
it is possible though. just hard.
the mid isnt a must ave so i coud go with an active in the middle too but im not that familiar with active single coils...
EMG also makes active single coils.
From what I have heard emg's single coils are amazing. They definitly have way better cleans then any of the humbuckers. I say go for it.
yea i was reading about them after i posted this earlier... and i think thats what im gonna do is just get an active single coil too...but my guitar is basswood and ive heard arguments on different woods for emgs and i was wondering about basswood? anyone know anything?
