EMG 81/55's have been classic pickups for years noe but are the new Seymour Duncan Blackouts better? Tell me what you think!
EMGs are bassier.
SDs are treblier.

I really wish I could say you're funny and cool, but that would be like saying Africa doesn't have a poverty problem.
Still have yet to hear the blackouts truly, but you can't go wrong with an 81/85 set.
Blackouts are more natural sounding in there tone. They've also won numerous awards.
