EMG passives

Several months ago I bought an Emg Hz3 just as a Neck pickup & it was priced right. I was expecting mediocre at best. But was surprised at how good of sustain & clear chunky tone it gets. Lets say I was expecting a 5 out of 10,but got a 7 out of 10 ....10 being absolute happiest you can be with a pickup.

Thing is....I just ran acrossed a pageforum where almost every1 is saying the Hz3 suck. And that they are weak etc etc. Now granted those SELECT pickups do indeed Blow. worst Ive ever played. But the Hz3 sounded really goood to me & thats comparing it to the Bill lawrence bucker,cuz thats in my bridge & they balance out quite well.

So NOW what you're saying, after everyone proved your dumb**** ass wrong, is that you never would have trusted the advice in a forum anyway, so this whole thread was you asking a question you were always going to ignore the answer for?

Are you entirely god damned stupid?

Re: EMG passives

I guess the whole Moral of the thread is ...... I was surprised that so many people in another forum I was reading just to see what others thought,were so against the Emg H3.
I was quite satisfied with their sound quality.
