EMG's are the best pickups you can get for a plywood guitar . I have a few downstairs I never spent more than 15 bucks on buying.

I put a switch on the off wire on my old guitar to turn the battery off so i didnt have to unplug it. The switch just sat in the tone hole.

Re: EMGs? Love em or hate em? Discuss

I played a Schecter hellraiser yesterday - the EMG's sounded less bad in it. It had a bit more grrr to it when distorted, and the cleans weren't as sterile as the last time I checked an EMG-loaded guitar. However, I still prefer the sound of my passives. That being said, I'd like to check a few out in my rig at home. I don't expect to be turned onto EMG's (although I won't have any preconceived notions), but atleast that will give a fair benchmark on the EMG vs. DiMarzio-bout.
