at the shop we have a japanese ESP with 81's and playing through a triple super lead it sounds pretty good when you crack a solo. yes they do sound compressed! i am even thinking of buying another RG one with dimarzio's and on with EMG's

i would say its the temperatue! the springs in the back with move with the temperature as well as the rest of the guitar, its unavaoidable really. 1-2% should be able to get rid of that with the fine tuners

my opinioni on Les Pauls is very low sorry to say. we have had several come through our shop. Two had the head stocks snapped off! the metal used in the parts is also pretty soft at times

you need to remember its a problem all floyd rose guitars have. I have a 570 and its not as bad as you discribe but yes when you get on a hard tail guitar you notice the difference. i have had some work done on mine by a crafts man and its awsome now.

EMG pickups

What do you guys think about the EMG 81 active pick ups, i played them in an ESP the other day and they were awsome, so much gain and the harmonic were so loud. i have been thinking about putting these in my RG570, good idea?
