if you play hard rock/metal go for the emg.

Depends what your tastes are, and what sounds you prefer, and I've heard the invaders are crap.

Hmm, probably the EMG, BUT! What amp are you using? Chances are a much better amp (if you have a bad one now) will improve your tone tenfold instead of just new pickups with old amp.

you'll also want to consider getting a pair if you do go EMG, it's a pita to wire the actives with a passive unless you are just going to leave one disconnected.

hmm yeah everyone tells me its a **** amp but i dont care i like it, it has just the right distortion for me, so im happy.... but this thread isnt about my amp, its about the EMG or seymour duncan....

If you like it, keep it, despite what people say.
And the EMG will be better for what you want, but most people who want EMGs want a recto...
And new pickups won't make THAT much of a difference with low end gear, just a warning.
