What do you guys think,if I play metal with my Jackson KE3 Kelly,should I changed it's Seymour Duncans (JB TB-4 and Jazz SH-2N) for two EMGs HZ4(Passive pick-ups).

do a search...... but uh..... 80's metal sound were mostly EMG's. I'd go with the Duncan's in a heart beat. ZEBRA COILS

The sound of 80's metal is the Dimarzio Super Distortion - EMG actives are more a 90's thing.

EMG's HZ's are ok if you get them stock, but aren't really worth considering as an upgrade - there's better things out there.
Actually called Mark!

EMG's passive line isnt much to speak of, IMO. The JB is always a good choice for pretty much any kind of music. I would go with the JB.

yeah, i'd say going HZ from duncans is a step back, if anything.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

For EMGs, definately an 81 in the bridge and 60/85/89 in the neck.

definitely the 85 in the bridge, it's an alder guitar!
