I have 4 ESP LTD EC 1000 guitars 3 of which came w/EMG's the other with a JB in the bridge and I think a '59 in the neck... I am not a fan of the tone like I am the set up... To me the guitars sound closer to an SG than a LP. I am looking for that warm LP tone with a good amount of output....but I do not at all like actives. What advice can you guys give me???
