. . . The EMG-X series pickups? Thinking my nice ASS, which I've owned for several years, would appreciate a Luke to replace the MkII that I sold roughly four years ago.
I'm a bit out of touch, but aware of of the LIII, however I'm wondering if the active pickups would add a nice change over my other guitars. Are the EMG-X series actually a bit more open sounding, as compared to the non-X version?
Perhaps there's a reason why EB hasn't elected to use them, outside of the one gold special run I'm aware of?
Not intending to second-guess the manufacturer, just seeking info.
