This is another of those threads thats inspired by another thread.
When the discussion of active pups comes up, the focus always seems to go to EMG's. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) I heard a band play the other day where the lead guitarist was using an HSH Ibby with EMG's. He was playing bluesy, rockin' leads, and it wasn't sterile at all. Just a great clean "cut" through the mix.
But I can't help but wonder if there's something wrong with Seymour's actives. Its almost as if no one knows they exist. (And, they're already 18-volt ready.)
I'm just curious . . . what does the "active" crowd think of LiveWires? Why aren't they ever suggested? Or, have I just missed those threads?
(And of course, now I'm chompin' at the bit to try some.)
