I play at different places, but most often at church. We have stage lights that are terrible for stage noise. Standard issue single coils don't cut it. I went through humbuggers and noiseless pups until I put an EMG t-set in my silver burst parts/mod caster. They sound fantastic. Well I picked up an LTD TE-212 T style guitar about a month ago, and put some EMGs in it on Saturday. This time I went with an RT in the bridge and a 60 in the neck. Wow does it sound great!! These pups are so underrated! EMGs certainly aren't just for metal!
