Re: RGA8 pickup replacement
There are EMG 81-8H and 85-8H pickups now. I was the first to get them from EMG and the only one to get them as a custom made set in soapbar format. They are the best 8 string pickups Ive heard to date, however, you can't get them in soapbar, and the H housing might require routing...so if they do, i suggest the Blackouts, at least the blackout in the bridge. but also add the EMG RPC, combined with any active 8 string pup, its boosts the highs and lowers the bass, henced I coined it the 808 Fix, but it was not well received on the silly juvenile forum SSO because they are all fanboys who likes to support one fad after another in groups. stay away from there if you want any real, self-thinking or a valid opinion.
anyway if anyone wants to know more about my 1 of a kind EMG set or the RPC or blackouts, please hit me up, id love to help any 8 string player from jemsite
