Do you find a huge difference between EMG and passive pickups with your setup?

The one issue I always heard about was that they didn't play well with some fuzz pedals.


I use EMGs because I want the low impedance signal and bit of compression they have when feeding my octave split rig. EMGs sound like the whole rig is glued together nicely. Passive pickups don't work as well for the bass side of the rig.

Any fuzz that wants a high impedance direct connection wont get along with any active pickup or buffered system but I never use anything like that so active pickups work well for me.


Thanks for all the answers! It seems like this is the perfect setup for how you play and the gear you use.
Running an octave down mix I could see where you would need a tighter signal

It's a one-off build.

12 string is flipping cool, is it a DIY project or did you have someone build it?

what is that wack vibrato tailpiece? and can you actually use it without going out of tune instantaneously?

I had the body made by someone from another forum. Neck is best guitar parts. The trem is an RTO. Super nice actually. Stays in tune better than some of my other 6 strings.

RTO trem looks pretty sweet,
doing some reading on the work they put into the thing,

from your experience it seems like it works as well as they say.


What kindof pickups you got in there?

Hey thanks!
Everything aside from the pickguard, knobs, and wiring harness came second hand from eBay/reverb or forum classifieds. The body is MJT, it’s a bit more relic’d than I’d like but it was cheap and once it gets some actual wear I imagine it’ll look a bit more natural. Neck is from an ‘00s AVRI. Pickups are Fralin hum canceling JMs. Guard is from Tone Guard before he went awol. It’s wired 2V 2T with a kill switch. Oh and it has staytrem bridge and trem arm collet with a mid-60s tailpiece.
