i have recently become a pink floyd/david gilmour fanatic ive grown obsessed with their music, and i fricken love em.
now, i really like Gilmours tone while he solos, and iv eread he uses EMG single coil pickups.
now, on my main guitar(fender strat) i was thinking maybe to get a set and put em on there to get closer to his sound. good idea? you tell me

thanks for any replies

They're probably good, but I don't think he actually uses them anymore. Apparently, he only had them because they cut out some of the buzz produced by the ridiculous amounts of lights he used to have around him live.

They have a really full sound and very little noise (he installed them because of the imense amounts of lights & electronics he used as previously stated)

Lace Sensors work quite well for Gilmour though for other styles it's hit-and-miss, I'd suggest you use one in conjunction with two traditional singlecoils for a wide range of tones.

But yeah as _Marooned_ (who I'd guess is a Gilmour fan from the name alone...) suggested, if Gilmourish can't help, no-one can.

Gilmour currently uses, I think, the original passive pickups in his Black Strat, aside from the bridge pickup, which I think is a Seymour Duncan of some sort.

The EMGs will get you one sound, really: the Momentary Lapse of Reason/Division Bell sound, plus Delicate Sound of Thunder and PULSE. They're not going to work for the rest of it, or at least, not as good as they could.

Do you like the Pulse guitar sound? If so, buy them! You won't be getting the 70s tones, but you'll be able to nail the Pulse Shine On tone.

i had them on my Strat - the best cleans of any pups - bar none!

OD is very modern, thick, sorta buzzy - very very high output pups, too much for me - but if you are into any Floyd, get them - for a good price

guy from the Aussie P.F tribute has them - sound amazing

Best example I can give for the difference is the recent Remember That Night DVD. Compare any track he uses his Black Strat on to SOYCD, where he uses his red Strat. it's a noticeable difference.
