  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So a few weeks back I posted about how I hated EMGs and how they sounded awful on palm mutes and how I wanted to throw them in a fire. One of you kind souls suggested I raise the height of them, and it worked beautifully. I just wanted to share the fruits of my labor, in the form of a clip I...

    I found a good deal on a used EMG Retro Actives Super 77 set and installed them in my LTD EC-1000T, replacing an EMG 57/66 set. For those who don't know, these are conventional passive ceramic humbuckers with an active preamp attached to the bottom. They plug right in to the conventional EMG...

    I have a set of 7 string EMG's coming in. There going into an Ibanez RGA7. The guitar has 1 volume pot and an EQ selector switch. I want to wire that switch to kill power from the battery, so I can leave the guitar plugged in and not have to worry about battery life. Will this work? Thanks.

    Hey there, how are you? So i got a simple question: In your experience with pickups, is this EMG pickup broken? I just ordered it brand new, it's an EMG-81X, and i was inspecting it yesterday to perhaps try and install it myself, and saw this "smash"/depression (don't know the right word for it)...

    So I'm looking for a new guitar. But I'm not sure which one. I can't decide between the Jackson RRX24, Jackson KV6 BKS or the Jackson RRMG. Jackson RRX24: https://www.gear4music.com/us/en/Guitar-and-Bass/Jackson-RRX24-X-Series-Rhoads-Electric-Guitar-Gloss-Black/22Z4 Jackson KV6 BKS...

    *Really* didn't want to publicly come out and say it, because EMG is my favorite pickup brand and I'm a big fan of their products and have had no issues with their product in the past, as well as the fact as I'm not a fan of creating Rocka levels of drama surrounding a product flaw, but the...

    Since I've dedicated myself to install Irongear pickups in all my guitars I've now finally swapped out the EMG 81 of my Jackson RR24. Now, to be completely honest, in this particular comparison above, I slightly prefer the EMG 81: I dont like the "stiffness", but it's not icepicky in top-end...

    Hi there guys, not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but here I go, I have a 81/85 EMG Set that I want to have mounted in one of my guitars, the thing is I just want to have a volume pot, but being a Push-Pull I can select which pickup I can activate, so, no swicth, no tone, just a...

    so I just bought a used set of EMGs off ebay for a steal, and now they are here i'm a little worried i've been duped as these don't seem to match any wiring diagrams i can find, and all EMG quick connects i've seen are 3 pins and not 5 pins like these are. They look like EMG HZs from the back...

    So on a whim, I recently picked up a 81-7H and couldn't be happier. I never played actives before and was always curious to try them. For metal rhythms thru my triple recto it's absolutely crushing. While I still appreciate passive pups, I'm an EMG convert for brutal metal stuff. However, for...

    Remember my reamping craze I had a while ago? It's over. And it was the pickups fault ALL ALONG!!!!:pissed: I'm re-recording one of my upcoming albums from scratch with Irongear Steam Hammers. It's definitely going to be worth the time! Here's the old recording, with EMG 60. It's muddy and meh...

    Need some regulur EMGs to put in one of my guitars. Not too hot on the Het Set for my taste, so I'm looking for a regular EMG set (81/60, 81/85) in chrome to trade for them. No pics ATM, but will get some later.

    I just need two more to complete the mods on my Charvels. Seriously, why are they so fucking hard to find in the UK? I've never attempted buying any before so never noticed, but good fucking god they never come up. Buying new is a little out of budget as they're £70+ each, or £200 for a set of...

    Hi guys, I'm looking into the logistics of putting EMGs in my Ibanez RGD and from looking at the diagram, I see that it doesn't have instructions on using TWs with only one master volume. Just wondering if anyone has any clue if that's possible at all? I'm doubtful as on the TW pot it only has...
