EMG owners

Alright guys, over on Strat-Talk, i started a Strats with EMG's club a while back. Its only appropriate that we have one here. Plus, im thinking of building a tele soon that is loosely based off of Jim Roots tele. So, who here has a tele (or any guitar) with EMGs in it. Lets see em. I used to, but this strat has gotten a major makeover since this pic was taken.

2000 American Series Strat, SS 6105 frets, EMG S neck and mid, EMG SA bridge, SPC and EXG tone controls... totally sick. Wish I could play the darn thing.

Rat parts caster: 80s US Kramer ee-S3 body, has a Schecter neck these days, not the one in the picture.

EMG-T Neck and Bridge, EMG Strat Ceramic in the middle, forget what the designation is. It is the most Strat and Tele in one guitar I have codbled together. And I have cobble Strats to sound like Teles, and used Strat pickups in the neck and middle on Teles countless times.

The bridge pickup is in the middle position on the switch, so it has more tele positions than strat. But the bridge/middle position is full on Strat quack, and the middle alone is full on Strat middle.

I threw it together to try out the EMGs, and just left it as is cause it plays and sounds good to me. ;)

One day I may cut a new PG to follow the bout correctly, that guard came with the body so I cobbled with it.

A Contemporary body partscaster, a Japanese E series, and now a Valley Arts, all with DG-20 EMGs.

Here's the first 2 - can't beat the sound - it's SO nice to have tone controls that do more than sound like you stuck a mattress in front of your amp.

Sweeeet. What exactly do the SPC and EXG do? I wanna use a boost or some little gizmo in my tele. Just to kinda change things up. Im thinking about using the Afterburner.

From EMG Website:

SPC - "Strat Presence Control" is often called the fat control. The original intent of the SPC was to turn the tone of a single-coil pickup into a dual-coil. This is accomplished by boosting the gain in a broad mid-band fashion and reducing the highs. The result is a fatter, louder tone from any single coil pickup, but you can also use it on a humbucking to give you a high output, really fat tone that's great for slide guitar.

EXG - For flexibility in tone at your fingertips there is no better choice than the EXG Guitar Expander. The frequency response of the EXG is similar to normal guitar amp equalization. The lows and highs are boosted while the midrange is dipped out. The EXG is great for creating a fuller tone that doesn't get muddy, while keeping it clean and clear, letting your guitar stand out in the mix.

That is a perfect 80s guitar. Haha. Ive always wanted something with a floyd. If i had 800+ to drop on a new guitar, i would get one of the new strat plus tops with a maple neck and a floyd.

The best part is I got it from a friend for a set of standard nissan steel wheels and tires that I had laying around in the shed about 12 years ago.

I bought a "J.D. Telecaster" which was the japanese version of the custom shops "Jerry Donahue Telecaster".I liked the neck and the black body with binding.It was also routed for a Tele bridge pickup and a Strat neck pickup.I thought that the japanese pickups were weak and I badly needed a guitar that I could use with my computer.This was before the flat-screen monitors.I bought an EMG RT bridge pickup and an EMG SV Strat pickup.It sounded fine with no hum.I have left it like this because it is a good guitar both in look,playability and sound.Maybe I will add a SPC one day.
