Finally got around to posting some pics of my EMG JEM. She has EMG 81 bridge, SA middle, 85 Neck, and is tuned down to D. Evo's weren't doing the job I wanted it to do. I wanted massive gain (in disgusting dosages :twisted: ) and wanted super laser sharp crisp cleans. EMG fitted the bill. Hope you guys like it. Active pickups in a JEM IS an okay thing. It's awesome for me.

I love how EMGs sound, just not their look.

Looks definately cool! :headbang
Can you explain the major sound differnces between the Evos and the EMG's?I've heard some great things about EMGs but unfortunately never had a chance to play a guitar equiped with them.

Besides haing more gain, they are "smoother" sounding than the Evo's. Also when using the 85, shredding sounds more sluid, almost as if the notes blend into each other. The 81 (bridge) has the "cutting" quality that Evo's have, but even more so than the Evo. And the 85 (neck) tends to have a more mellow tone, yet has tons of gain. The SA (middle) has a "smokey twang" to it.

I'd love to hear some sound clips if you ever get some time. Too bad you didn't do a before/after recording. Are those pickups active; do you have a 9v hidden away in there?
