    EMG's take on the PAF sound. Sounds interesting.

    Why do active pups continually get billed for being better when they sound similar to passives? Why wouldnt they revel in their activeness, or just make actual passives?

    I'm starting to get sick as all fucking shit of motherfucking pickup makers saying these new fucking blahblahfuckingblahs have the fucking blah blah fucking blah of passives and the fucking blahdy blah cunting blah of actives. No. No they fucking dont.

    While we're at it, I've invented a guitar that has the thick, big sound of a les paul and the sharp, tight crispness of a maple necked baritone. Who wants one?

    Pickup manufacturers: stop now please.

    ^ It's the same as stacked or noiseless singles. They're called humbuckers, because that's what they sound like. Only the lower output, crank them up to the strings, hum like a high voltage transformer, real fucking single coils sound like that.
