EMG's IMO.

Although, the Blackouts seem pretty cool. But I like EMG's.

emgs, from what ive seen emgs have an 89 which is coil splittable - do blackouts or live wires?

I love the Livewires. I had the Dave Mustaine set in my Peavey. They're the most organic sounding active pickup ever. They sound like a JB or a '59 or 'roids.

I've heard the SD Blackouts are more versatile than EMG's. I haven't heard much about the Livewires.

Blackouts dont require routing either.

they both require 9v batteries. if you can fit a 9v in your control cavity, like i can, you don't need additional routing. if you can't, then you do need routing with blackouts or emg's.

They are based on those models.
