hi! i played the other day a friends ibanez which had emg, and sound WAAAY better than any other ibanez of the same range i knew. the sound was more agrresive. i have a set of bartolini in my lakland 4-94 (a J and a MM) which sound thin. is great for many styles and thechnics, but is missing that character thet the ibanez had. the problem is that the lakland is active (switchable). are any passive EMG or any other brand that has that aggresive sound that makes passive J`s and MM`s ??? thancks for any input!
