So I feel obliged to share my experience with anyone interested. In March we travelled to FL to record an album and I couldn't bring my guitars so I planed on using the guitars that were in the studio. Some fantastic axes were there like a 57' LP special, 59' Jr, assorted Les Pauls, strats etc. But I'm a tele guy and the dude had a 62' MIJ custom that he fitted with the emg's and SPC. Admittedly I was a sceptic, you know, f*** active pickups but man....that thing sounded so good it was unbelievable, probably the best neck pickup I've played ever, on any guitar. They are terrific!! Worked with the JCM 800, Supro, Mesa mini rectifier ( another revelation ) and a Line 6 Helix with no issues whatsoever. I'm seriously considering changing out the pickups in my tele for the emg's.
