    IMHO.. very cold sounding.... compared to Barts and SDs....

    But I guess it gives it a more Treble/High Mids and possibly Mids.. but I didn't really have good experiences with EMGs.. i stick with Barts or SD

    I've got 40 hz EMGs on my ESP F205, nice stuff, it's just I personally admire Steve Harris' amazing tone from his single coil pickups.

    i've got EMGs on my czechtor.

    they are definitely "slap" pickups.

    listen to mother's milk by RHCP or most any victor wooten (fodera w/EMGs) to get a good feel for the EMG sound.

    i don't have anything against them, but the next bass i get will have barts.

    not sure how a fretless would sound with EMGs, either.

    Rockin' and Rollin' with 'em. I ripped out the Duncan's from my Steve Harris model, and there aint no turnin' back. Nice bottom, clear treble, and QUIET!
