Um I have a hellraiser and did the 18v mod on the pups and I love it. However, i think the blackjack might be more up your alley. Good choices though.

Well seeing as your basing it around pickups, the duncans are the most versatile of the two. EMG's are mainly made for high gain stuff.

Er, wrong.

The 08 hellraisers have coiltapped pickups, which makes them one of the most versatile guitars

Er, wronger.

Coil- tapped EMG's still sound like EMG's. Anyway, the Blackjack's pickups are also tapped.

Pritty much yea. Also the C-1 has a 5 way switch which allows you to get single coil sounds with it too. So I still stand my ground and say the duncans are more versatile than the EMG's.

I LOVE my EMG's but i guess not everyone does. Or the people that hate them just jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else. They have decent cleans. I think they sound pretty warm.
