No, they're pretty terrible.

Same goes for the guitars they're in, usually.

They have a bad rep because they are in shitty guitars.But,they are better than the majority of stock pickups in lower end guitars.

I played on an H4, and I liked it a lot. I'm gonna take the duncan designed bridge out of my rr-3 when it gets here, and pop an h4 in.

If you like it, then I guess that's all that matters, but if you're gonna do that, then you might as well put a good pickup in it...

Any HZ is horrible, they are like the Seymour Duncan... Duncan Designed pickups, which are cheap ass terrible pickups with the Duncan name attached. Spend the extra cash & get the real deal.

alexi laiho wears gay makeup too, that doesnt mean its a good thing.. why couldnt he go with Alex or Al, anything by alexi, he's such a femme.

H4z are the best of the passive EMGs i played.. not so fun as 81s though
