i got the ltd rl-600, which have the same specifics as the alexi600 one, as the guitar is pretty cool, the only think i dont like and im sure mostly of you dont either is the pickup. i cant like it and i really think to change for another. something with more gain.. people say that emg 81 is the best but im not sure, perhaps theres another cool passive pickups that i could swictch instead of that one that are more related to alexi sound, and more gain. i dont know, my preference is for the passives because of the battery of the actives. i ask you guys to suggest some cool pickups. thanks!
