How versatile are active pups? or are they too hot to do much beyond rock?
They don't have the greatest cleans in the world. They're great for metal and a lot of rock, but I wouldn't use them for anything else really.
theyre hot as hell and great for any type of metal. but the cleans on them suck.
The cleans are GOOD ENOUGH ha
lol ok so getting a guitar with emgs for metal and blues wouldnt be such a good idea
The EMG 60 isn't that bad with it's cleans, but there are better out there. If you want metal and blues, get something hot like an Bill Lawrence in the bridge, and something a little warmer in the neck
