I got a nice RG and I want good pickups. I like both the Nailbombs (Bareknuckles) and the 81-85 set of EMG's. Your opinions?
Gear:
B-52 ATX-100
Mesa Oversized recto 4x12
Jackson DKMG (w/ BareKnuckle Warpigs )
Ibanez Acoustic

Feel free to add me or PM me.

It sounds cliche, but DiMarzio's are the best for Ibanez guitars. All my RG's have DiMarzio pickups on them and they sound fantastic.

EMGs are nice and heavy, pretty good for metal. However, I really got bored with the tone of mine. =/

Gear:
Agile AL-2000 > Maxon OD808 > Boss DD-20 > Strymon blueSky > Splawn Pro Stock > Emperor 4x12

the lives to come

yeah, cos ibanez guitars don't sound good with anything but dimarzios.

that's retarded. it just so happens that ibanez's main endorsers are also dimarzio users.

back on topic- which do you want more? i mean, they're going to sound different... if you've already tried them both, you probably know more than we do...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Given the choice of the two, Bareknuckles anyday. But it all depends on your amp really, its pointless shelling out for an expensive set of pickups if the amp you're playing through wont help them shine.

Its always an idea to get a good tone with the amp, then compliment it with a pickup swap.
