Does anyone have any experience with the EMG 81-x, 707-x, or 60-x? I'm wanting to change the pickups in my Agile Intrepid 727. Are the X series as high output as the regular series? I thought about Bare Knuckle and Dimarzio pickups, but i've always liked EMG's and have them in other guitars and it seems like most of the tones i like, have been recorded with EMG's as well.
I play brutal death metal and shreddy type stuff. Any suggestions? If i go with EMG's should i do 81 or 707 in the bridge? Which pickup in their 7 string series sounds most like an 85? I've always liked an 85 in the neck for sweeping and shred stuff.
To the guys that like Bare Knuckle, what do you think the advantages are over EMG's? Which BK pickups would be good for my style?
The guitar is:
Mahogany Body, Maple Fretboard
5 piece maple/walnut neck-thru
