hi! this is my dilema: i have lakland 4-94, with the bartolini pups (J & MM) and the bartolini pre amp. SWR amp and use lots of compressor (claypoolian influenced). i find the bartolini to sound thin, many people also told me that about bartolini, so that maybe influenced me plus the G.A.S. the other day i trey out a ibanez soundgear with emg active pickups, and sounded MUCH more better than any other ibanez i ever heard or played, like more aggresive, more mwa-ish. is this the tipical "in your face" sound? what songs can i listen were the EMG sound is reconoceable? thancks for any input!
