i did try a guitar with REAL duncans at another shop with a rectum-frier and it was nice, although the cabinet was a laney TF412...

Passives are only good if their NOT EMGs and they are in a guitar with high quality wood.

Parkers sound extremely thin.

But the stainless steel frets are awesome!

Parkers cost like 1000$ if you get a good price so they dont count but youre right about them sounding good. I like EMGs though. But good wood and a good passive means better sound.

parkers can get pricey, yeh, but most top notch guitars do.....
for active vs. passive, there is no "better"... a great guitar with nice woods and everything should still sound amazing with active pickups. it just wont be so much the wood's fault
so good wood + passive pu doesnt really mean better sound at all.
that's like saying a dual rectifier is better than a fender hotrod.... each amazing amps but totally different sounds for different purposes.
it's all in the ear.

EMG's should really be an active pair if you wanna get emg's, they add vicous bite and attack but the hz's arent really anygood. emg 81 and 87 are a good combination. As far as passive pickups i think seymour duncans are the best i love the tone in the jb and the alnico 2. make sure you buy a seymour duncan pickup and not a duncan performer.

maybe you've never played a dimarzio.... they're easily just as good and in some cases better than duncan...
i also have a thing for gibson pickups like the burst bucker.
