Right on. EMGs do metal and not even my style of metal. Evos are a bit too transparent for thrash metal but are awesome for stuff like Iron Maiden.

I know a few people who put Tone Zones in the bridge and a PAF Pro in the neck and it sounds great. Very versitile and will handle metal and gets a good lead tone too - I really like the leads when you turn the midrange up a bit and dime your MV with both pickups!
