About EMG pickups
Ok, i love the EMG 81 distortion sound for lead playing, its just fantastic, but im afraid of two things.
The first: i dont know if the clear sounds are good enough, i mean, im also into warm clean jazzy sound, you know, for fingerpicking and clean jazz improv, a sweeter tone i guess. and i dont know if the 81's could perform this task (As a bridge pickup).
The second: i love the seymour duncan jazz humbucker (As a neck humbucker), i love that crunchy sound when the guitar is distorted and again the warmer tone for jazzy stuff, the problem is, that i havent found any EMG pickup with this features.
Well, you'll propably be saying , simple, put a EMG 81 in bridge and a SD Jazz in neck. OF COURSE! i though that at first, ***BUT!!!*** i read some faq at seymour duncan site , and there, they said that you just cant mix a SD passive pickup with an Active pickup of any other brand.
By the way i use a RG1570.
What you guys think about this?
Thanks for the help and comments.
