I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Which of your guitars has the AHB Blackouts in it?

None?
So you've never heard the pickups?
Really?
Never tried 'em yourself?
And you're saying they're better?

Holy ****. Jump offa that bandwagon, pal.

Well correct me if I'm wrong, but can't people play guitars that they don't own? Just because he may not have them doesn't mean hes never used them. So how about you jump off of your high horse because he may not be on the bandwagon.

Having tried some myself, I have to say I was quite impressed. They had a nice tone, clean and distorted. They are a good alternative to the EMGs if you want a little less power but a little more tone. But having tried the Blackouts also, they give you tone and power.
Be cool.

hahaha, thats hilarious

anyways, i got a set of EMG 81s and 85, and they are ok. pretty one-sided pups though. not amazing clean sound. but i have HEARD(i have not played) that the SD livewires are very versatile and have less output then EMGs do. ive never even seen a guitar with the livewires in them, but im very interested in actually hearing the sound.

I have the Mustaine Livewire pickups. Best actives on the market right now. It's much like a hot-rodded JB/Jazz set. It rips. Totally recommend them.

I tried the Mustaine sig, they were really high output. They sound similar to the EMG 81/85. You'll have to try both to see for yourself. There's a bit of difference, I can't really describe it.

they sound like a JB/Jazz setup on steroids, my uncle has a king V with some in it, pretty good sound in my opinion, i'll keep my passive's though.

No huge difference? Maybe not, but that's pretty much like all pickups. There aren't HUGE differences in pickups, but there's enough of one that I can tell the difference between Livewires and EMGs. You'd have to be very ignorant to miss it!

It just annoys the crap out of me that everyone says SD Blackouts are so much better than EMGs, but no one has tried them.
I'm not saying that they aren't better, I've never played a guitar with Blackouts so I don't know myself.
I just don't like people who don't know talking about things they don't know about.
