Dimarzio vs. Seymour Duncan vs. EMG

Wassup all, u probably remember me asking bitchloads of questions about esp, bc rich, schecter guitars. I just got an Rg t 42bp. What pickups should i put in it? Evoplutions, x2ns, invaders, jbs, wat? I need good tone, but a bit more gain in the bridge/mixed pickup sounds. I play a mix of melodic/brutal deat metal and more straight forward hardcore sort of riffs

for an RG shaped guitar, I'de definetly take either dimarzio's or sd's. but probably dimarzio's since I love my tone zones

congrats on the RGT dude.

Total personal preference. X2N's a howl from hell shredding the bones of lesser beings, liberally spreading their entrails over the blackened smoking plains of desolation.

I wont be able to try them out since i live in a smallish town etc. Dimarzios just seem to sound "right" in an rg... unfortunately I think Dimarzio dont have an agent in South Africa anymore, so I will be relying on you guys for advise. So what do you think X2N in the bridge, what for the neck? I need schweet tone but a bit extra gain as well. How does the tone zone, Evolution work for metal?

GREAT!!!!1

not the highest output pickups, but still pretty hot and the "tone" factor is huge as is the clarity.

EMG's arent hot people...

their very low output, why do you think they have a preamp boosting the signal?

you'll grow out of the trend sooner or later, we all do

they are hot smart guy, because of the peamp boosting the signal..

that's just something you make up because you want people to think they're weak... but they arent weak sounding. they're hot sounding. whether it's from a preamp boosting a low signal or not, they are hot.

that's like saying:
5150's are low gain weak little amps, they need several preamp tubes to give them that gain. duh

it's no trend... and not all do "grow out of it". look at alot of your guitar heros.. so many of them are sporting emg's. and there is good reason for it. they're great pickups.

Its the truth.. they have a low signal and the preamp boost it. Thats why their clear and not muddy (I dunno what the hell happed to the 707 though.. but it is modeled after the 85, which is supposed to be a neck pickup)

Not rocket science, but the pickups themselves arent hot.. after you add the preamp they are. How someone could see that as a negative point is beyond me.

Hell if I got free EMG's i'd use them too!

Anyways, I need to try an EMG for once. I live in a small town and have never played a guitar with EMG's.
