EMG Pickups you mean?

They're a nice active pickup. Play one. Try it out.

They have a bit more gain, yeah. They're active.

I don't like actives because...

1.) They lack that warm, organic quality of passives.
2.) Batteries always run out of juice at the worst possible moment.
3.) No one needs that much gain! :P

If you want lots of gain, just get some high output passives.
Like Dimarzio Super Distortion or Tone Zone. If that's not hot enough, the Dimarzio X2N has even more output.

Just my two cents.
