Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

usually EMGs plus a hollow/semi hollow = fail
Jackson Dinky DKMGT
PRS SE Paul Allender
Peavey 6505+ 112

EMG's aren't the greatest..

My humbucker in my HSS Fender Deluxe Strat sounds cleaner with distortion than my Viper-400 w/EMG 81 85
They're abit hotter, but messier.

And it wouldn't sound right on a Hollow/semi-hollow.

Tell him to buy a new guitar?
