Now under most circumstances, this would seem like a very godly modification...
Cept' I putting um' in my Omen 6, which is actually a rather mediocre guitar..
So, what I'm asking ya'll is, would it be worth it our would it be like placing a feminine wig on Chuck Norris?

I have a Line 6 Spider 2 that runs through a Boss GT-8. Yes, I know the Spider 2 is also pretty crappy, but its my 2nd amp...I've have it for about 4 years now..

acually if they're active emgs they will sound exactly the same no matter which guitar you put them on. this is an advantage if you have a $100 guitar and put active emgs, it will sound just like a $89409684096840 guitar with active emgs...if you run through a good amp...without a good amp though it really wont matter what kind of guitar or pickups your using...

So you're suggesting that with active EMGs nothing about the guitar other than the pickups themselves affect the tone? Not the wood, etc.?

^^^The wood would have little effect on your tone.

it has more effect than you would think.

Yeah. You can't say that a guitar made out of plywood is going to sound as good as a guitar made out of actual, high-grade wood if they both have active EMGs.

if this was the pit that post would be win. and you do have a great point. if TS wants better tone the first place to start is with an amp.

EMGs don't seem as affected by the wood as some pick-ups are, there is a little difference, but it is far less dramatic then some other pick-ups out there.

Amp is far, far more important than the guitar or its pick-ups. Half decent pick-ups sound a lot better through a good amp then a great guitar through a bad one.
