    I preferred the Ninja V.. There's something about Dean guitars that I just don't like.. Although my semi acoustic is a Dean, and it's ok..

    Hurray for contradiction!

    I don't like Deans. Especially not the Dime ones. Sounds so nasally trebly.

    The ESP Ninja and the Caparison is way better looking.

    Hey, haven't posted here in a while- been very busy with school work. :erk:

    Was wondering if you people could tell me what I needed other than the pickup to switch an EMG 81 (active) in the bridge position with a Dimarzio Steve's Special (passive). Would I have to switch pots or similar? Going for the Jani/old Petrucci pickup.
    Answers much appreciated, oh and fuck Dean.

    EDIT: Not sure if this helps, but its listed as a 'High Output' Pickup (albeit a passive one)

    Do you have two active pickups? If yes you have to switch both. You can't combine a passiv with an active as far as I know.

    Hi dudes. Haven't been posting here for a while but here's something.
    I was playing in this some kind of a musical thing last summer, and here's a video clip of my playing. (The first guitar solo) Nothing that special really, just a basic solo.

    Pretty cool dude! :) It's sometimes a bit hard to hear your solo but I think you played well.
    Nice cover. And both Esp guitars I see.

    And here's my cover of Arch Enemy's Burning Angel:

    you can, but it requires some non-standard soldering as far as i understood. i know people who swear by it, and apparently it works great(and is not noisy)

    It can be done as long as the circuits are COMPLETELY separated.

    Hi guys ! Glad to hear you liked it. Here's a copy paste from the EMG site about mixing active and passive pickups :

    "It is possible to mix EMG's with passive pickups. There are three possible wiring configurations; one is better than the other two.

    Use the high impedance (250K-500K) volume and tone controls. The problem is that the high impedance controls act more like a switch to the EMG's. The passive pickups, however, will work fine. If you have a guitar with two pickups and two volume pots, with a three-way switch, there is another alternative. Use the 25K pots for the EMG, and the 250K pots for the passive pickup. This way you can use one or the other with no adverse affects, but with the switch in the middle position the passive pickup will have reduced gain and response.

    Use the low-impedance (25K) volume and tone controls provided with the EMG's. The problem here is that the passive pickups will suffer a reduction in gain and loss of high-frequency response."

    There is a better way as long as you can live without mixing pickups. Which's gay anyway.
