I prefer the Search Bar over them both, but thats just me .
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Well, they both are inferior to red-heads, so that argument is pointless.


(And yes, I do have red-hair)


On a more serious note TS, none of us can tell you which pickup(s) is/are better because that would just be in our own opinion, not yours (which is the only thing that will matter). You have to go try 2 different guitars, one with EMG's, one with SD Blackouts, and see for yourself, we cannot tell you which one to get since our preference is different from yours.

Honestly, I played a guitar with Blackouts the other day thinking they would be amazing... they just didn't live up to all the hype IMO. In fact I still prefer EMGs.

81tw/89 or 81/60 sets FTW.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

Blackouts for sure. They have the output of active elements and the dynamics of a passive. Best of both worlds!
EMG sucks regarding dynamics.
