What amp do you have?

EMGs are super high output pickups, ya know...

If something isn't wired correctly, you can just fix it. You don't need to get new pickups.

It sounds like your pickups were defective or damaged. It’s really easy to ruin a good set of pickups. EMG's are super quite so if you are getting lots of noise there is something wrong. If it were a grounding problem then you wouldn't hear anything. It's probably something with the preamp.
