Now we're talking business. For warmth & fullness, put Evos's .For cold distance, put the EMG's. :P

Have you read my previous posts? Have you ever played EMG's? Do you have a brain?
As i said before.
-EMG's are not noisy
-EMG's have huge output, and are great for overdrive and clean tones
- EMG's have the warmth and "fullness"
-I OWN THEM!

Stop posting stupid EMG bashing posts when you dont own them! its fine, post all your glorious statements about your precious DiMarzario's. But dont bash something that you've never tried and are basing all your "facts" on estimations and stereotypes.
Go to the EMG site at

emginc.com

They have sound clips there and descriptions and all that jazz. Also, about the HZ series. I would opt for the active series, the HZ series is the passive EMG's. Ive never tried them personally, so i cant say that they have a clean signal like the active pickups. But they dont have the output like the actives(no battery, less power). But i would definitly suggest one of the active ones, 81, 85. are they 2 that i own, but im getting an SA for christmas so ill post about that one then, but im sure, like all the rest of the wonderful products from EMG, that they will be awesome.

I haven't got much of experience about EMG active pickups, but at least the passive ones are cold and the sound is "far-away".

have you listened you listened to anything ive said? dang man, get it through your head, EMG's dont suck, and you dont have a clue about what your talking about.

And to the question about the difference of 81's and 85's, i cant really explain it cause i dont remember all the technical mojo that goes along with it. Just go to the site,

emginc.com

Well it's useless to argue about a matter of taste.

yes theyre active .if you want the battery to be easily accessible then i can tell you that it doesnt fit into the cavity of my jem.you can also put the battery underneath the pickguard without any problems but if you have to change it,you'll have to remove the pickguard.

you can make a cavity for battery in the back side of the body and make a cover for that.
