First off, I'm feeling lazy. I don't want to make a new pickguard to cover the space left by passives in the RG8 plus, for some unknown reason I've been morbidly curious about active pickups again lately.
So all that aside, anybody give the EMG 808X pups a shot? What are they like compared to the Blackouts? All I really know is that the 808X has less output than the regular 808.
