Re: My Main Workhorse Lately
ESP's are unbelievably great guitars. Especially the neck-thru's loaded with EMGs. They almost seem to play themselves, and they sound incredible.
It's funny, because I have been on an EMG kick lately, too. I've always been a huge fan of passives, namely SD JB's and Distortions. I've always liked my M-II with EMG's, though, it was my best playing and sounding guitar, so I started to throw EMGs in other guitars lying around and have really been blown away.
I know EMGs get a bad rap, but they are very clean and very evenly voiced. I notice that it really pays to dial in my sound on my amp to the guitar I'm playing. I get better results. I wasn't too thrilled with the sound of my Caparison when I first got it. But now I'm using channels on my amp I never thought I would, and that thing smokes.
