Re: Charvel 750xl - New Pickup Config
1) Congrats! That's a sweet guitar.
2) No. Don't put EMGs in it, because it's an extremely rare guitar, and you'd have to rout wood out to do it. Plus, an EMG in a Squier Strat sounds exactly like an EMG would in a 59 Les Paul - exactly like everyone else that uses EMGs. The tonal differences of the wood/shape/workmanship are completely negated, IMO. Dimarzios or Duncans (or Bareknuckles, Lollars, Joe Bardens, et al) would be something you could use to make YOUR tone, and still get the tone out of that sweet mahogany/maple combo.
3) Just give the guitar to me.
