Would that be an option? I don't think he'd go for it, but I'd probably buy a barebones 8 with no pickups if it was still routed for 808's... Or even if it just had some crappy pickup in there that took up the same amount of space so I could switch it out.
I'm not sure about the dimarzios. That could be the case. I understand what he was saying, but I think emg would be fine with it, I mean its another platform to market their 808.
Yeah I dont think he'd go for that. I'd be satisfied with some cheap pick up, as people would probably swap pick ups around no matter what he puts in it.
