EMG's Are the best for me... Then again I like that crisp, evil, digital punch out of EMG's... Then again, I'm bearly human after being a produce of government military experiments.....

there. you pretty much nailed whats wrong with emg's.

well, its not 'wrong' but thats the downside of active pu's.

about the 370dx, you can throw those pickups right outta the window when you take it out of the box. I would prolly go with some nice dimarzio's or SD's if you want to go even heavier.

I've got a RG750, a pre'90 model with the original Edge trem, it owns. and I got it used for a good price, its on the same level as the prestiges nowaday, actually, it was the paul gilbert guitar before he got his own sig. nice bounded headstock/neck too, I use it with dimarzio tone zone's and a blue velvet in the middle pos.

If I wanted EMG's I'de probably stick them in a gibby les paul for a brutal bashing sound a lá Zakk Wylde. they sound thinner in an SG and I don't think they sound great in RG's at all. the Les Paul's fattness makes EMG's stand out.

i don't see why everybody hates emg's around here... i think they sound fine... an emg 60 in the neck position is my favorite for cleans... 81's and 85's are pretty nice to...
they don't sound like duncan's or dimarzios, but that's because they're emg's...

personally i love more passive pickups than active ones, but my next guitar is going to be a 1972 tele thinline with an emg 60 in the neck and duncan livewire metal in the bridge.... fantastic... but first i need to sell my pgm 30.

in my rg 570 i'm trying to figure out if i like the duncan jb or dimarzio tonezone better... if only they had one that was like a mixture...
my guitarist just ditched the emg's in his sg... he has the stock neck pu back in there because he likes it's solo tone, and he's thinking of going for a dimarzio super distortion or a gibson dirty fingers.

but i'd hardly say that emg's are super sterile or fake sounding... alot depends on the guitar, the amp, and the person playing.

I don't think there's anyone who 'hates' EMG's here, haha.

in comparisson, all active pickups sound more sterile, but thats just the characteristic of active pickups, they do have a lot of output and sound really tight, tighter then most passive pu's. they can sound really brutal. best example how tight an emg can sound is dino cazares. I let a friend of mine try his LP with EMG zakk wylde set and it was really brutal through both my tube amps. but the overall tone remained the same, didn't do much for me, but I can understand why some people love them. If I had a solid state setup I'de probably use them to in one of my guitars. Livewires are better, but they have different characteritics, they're more like a boosted passive in sound.

as for RG's, I love my tone zone's in it, they're not as heavy as a duncan JB set, but they sound great overall, they can really scream out on the high notes and they just compliment your playing when you're doing solos.

So as for the rg 370dx which pickups would sound heavier or better in them, i want something with a nice clean heavy sound, maybe something like KSE, lamb of god, sorta of like that.

thanks

If you want a good clean sound than get some good Passives, im not a fan of EMG cleans at all.

EMG's will give more of a tight, punchy sound...

Passives will give you more tonal options.

Well I made a thread similar to this not too long ago, and had about the same price range for getting a new amp and the more experienced members recomended either getting a used Peavey 5150 Combo or a Crate Blue Voodoo-60 halfstack, so I would say check those two out.

as for getting a new amp for 400, you're going into the used market for sure because its hard to find an amp for that price thats decent. a 5150 combo would be neat for that price, if they're that cheap over there.

what amp are you using right now?
