Re: Post Pics of your Artcore or Archtop(s) Families too!
This may sound crazy, but toss an EMG 81 into something like a flat black AM-73 Artcore and thrash out.
I have thought about that to replace my high gain ESP/LTD solidbody. I have almost got away with high volume Marshall stack stuff with my full sized semi, the AS73, and as long as I don't get too close (as in right in front on stage with Marshall at 7+), then I am OK. I did an outdoor gig with stock, slightly microphonic stock Artcore pickups, standing right in front of a Marshall and PA on cramped beach stage, and it was a little much. I think the active EMG 81 would be able to handle it though.
