Okay, since I have been playing guitar (A little over 2 years now), I have noticed that so many people who play metal seem to LOVE EMG pickups. I played on a few guitars with EMGs, and they sounded so bloody horrible. I just gotta know, what is it with people and EMG Pickups? What makes them SO awesome that EVERYONE seems to like them so damn much? I have a Seymour Duncan Live-Wire Heavy Metal active bridge pickup on my guitar, and I think it sounds a thousand times (Big exaggeration) better than any EMGs, I just don't get what the deal is.
