    Has anyone ever tried EMG pups with Fender Tapewound strings? I used them on my Ibanez (stock pups) a few times and really liked the sound, esp when slapping. It was so deep and the bottom was just so pronounced. I was wondering if anyone has heard them played through real slap pickups like EMGs.

    I had some Rotosound tapes on my Warwick 'vette with active MEC's one time. It's a special sound, not very "hi-fi"/modern sounding if this is what your after.
