EMG just e-mailed me back, they dont' recommend mixing active with passive. But he says alot of folks still want to do it. He also sent me the wiring diagram for mixing an active PU in the bridge with a passive single coil and humbucker in the middle and neck. Gonna also post this in the EMG thread for anyone wanting to know about active/passive.


I would go for the active PU's. I'm not sure how good alder sounds, but it seems to be the low end price for jackson models. Prob wouldn't get that brutal of sound using passives with alder as you would using active EMG's. I'm in the same boat. Mine is basswood. Think I may try the hybrid setup, and if I'm not satisfied, I'll prob just go all active.
