    Why would you want pickups that sound like EMGs. Why not get EMGs? Barts are very different pickups than EMGs. They're probably considered opposite ends of the spectrum. Once again, just get EMGs.
  3. Yeah, EMGs are completely different than Barts. EMGs usually have a darker tone, with realy nice lows, while Barts are kinda more standard, with a better midrange.
