RG's with EMGs?

Are there any current Ibanez models with active EMGs? Preferably the 81 and 85? I might just get a 550and load it up.

I've been dying to play one of those for ages now. It combines all my favourite aspects in a guitar I want/need. The neck and feel of an RG, fixed bridge, neck-thru, and EMG pickups! In the new year I will definitely get around to picking one up at some point, cos it will kill 2 or 3 birds with one stone for me.

Beautiful guitar! It will be hard to choose between this one and the Jackson SLSMG. They've got almost the same specs (jackson has a string-through bridge and ebony fretboard). I wonder what's the price on the Ibanez (jackson's at 1000euros)?

The Jackson is nice yeah, but it only has EMG HZ passive pickups. Not the full blown EMG Active pickups.

The '06 model has the 81(B) and 85(N).
Too bad there are only 3 colors (the satin black looks sweet IMO)

Ah, I never knew that.
The upgrade to the EMG 81 and 85 will definitely help sales.
