      Emg isnt going anywhere.
      IMO they put active pickups on the map.
      While I'm not a big fan, a lot of bands whose guitar tones I love use them.
      Havn't heard the blackouts, but regardless of how awesome they might be, I doubt they are gonna replace an entire company.

        Analog pups provide better harmonics, I choose neither and have a guitar with an EMG and my Alnico V's pups destroy it!

        EMGs are digital now???

        So how are the harmonics "better" in other pups?

          What about the elusive D-Activator pups for comparison of the SD and EMG?

            Oh, didn't you know? Dimarzios are only for soul-less shredders. Heh.

            Seriously, the D-Activators are getting great reviews by and large.

              I have a Jackson Guitar with The EMG 81/85 SET and a Epiphone Les Paul with the Seymour Duncan Blackouts ABH1.  In my opinion, the SD sounds much better than the EMG`s. After I install the SD in the Epiphone I never used my jackson again.
