For the first half of Bridge to Cross by BLS, is Zakk using his LP with EMG's? I really like that clean sound, and if EMG's can do that I'll be happy with 'em. Thanks

who really knows what he used to record it in the studio with.but live he does use his LP.

The clean does sound like it would be a Gibson and EMG combo but who really knows.

Yeah, you could get that tone out of a set of EMG's.

Couldn't be sure thats what he is using in Bridge to Cross though...

I know he has used a Danelectro in studio before even lol, so could be something weird.

if its a recording, i honestly doubt it. Or else theres alot of studio magic involved. Alot of ppl say they are the worst pickups u can have clean, thats why everyone has to run a chorus or some other effect when playing with em. If theres no effect on it, i really dont think theyre EMGs.

Ok, well do any of you have a link to where I can hear a sample of EMGs on clean? I tried the EMG site, but for some reason the clip won't work.

Wow, those sound pretty good. So on Metallica S&M Kirk is using EMGs too, right? One and Call of the Ktulu have some pretty nice clean tone. I know that it'll mainly be my amp, effects, and me, but I just want the potential to be there.

eww those didnt appeal to me at all imo.


Same. Well, they did, but I would rather have my guitar sound different.

For bridge to cross he might be using a Roland Jazz Chorus, as he does use it in the studios sometimes. As for the ESP EC1000 series, I'd go with the Vintage black, it has an ebony fretboard instead of rosewood, and they have a great sound.
When will DiMarzio make active pickups?
