. These old active EMGs came in my Rickenbacker when I bought it 25 years or more ago. I have since replaced them with OEM Rickenbacker pickups. I have always wondered exactly what these EMGs are. BTW, they are definitely EMGs. They used to have the little silver logos in one corner. My thumb wore them off. Are they any good? Are they a sought after pickup? I didn't like them in the Rick at all, but mainly because they made it sound un-Rick like. Thanks in advance.
