    I wonder if this will be an all new model or just a pre-packaged set like the KK or ZW 81/85 sets

    I think this was talked about awhile back. They're possibly going to be a new set of passive.

    He's been playing 57/66. I doubt they will be passive.

    That's what I thought, another pre-packaged sig set, duh! But if it is indeed a new set, I'm all ears :agreed:

    To add more confusion, earlier this year he recorded 3 songs for EMGTV playing 81x-60x on a beat up guitar w/ no branding, you could tell it was originally blue at some point, lol.

    Would this mean Marty is coming back in full force?

    From what I've heard, it's a regular Les Paul that suffered fire damage.

    I wish I can find the link, though. I did hear somewheres that they were passives. I can be totally off, though.

    ...and here's the best image I could find of the new Jackson sig prototype. I don't really dig the new axe, but the pickups, I'm definitely interested!

    ^Can't use Imgur. Use something like postimg or tinypic.

    EDIT: And I told you guys. :fawk: And I'd rock the .... out of his Jackson sig. I wish the entire Monarkh line used that traditional shape instead of the one with the limp cutaway.

    the monarkh is a sick guitar. Too bad the last one I played had blackouts or else I would have bought it.

    :agreed: The reverse headstock on Marty's helps too. Looks meaner.

    Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about the pickups. :lol: EMG passives tend to suck donkey dick.

    Although since Marty is giving his input, they'll be good I hope. The EMG GZR passive bass pickups get tons of praise, even though they're passive EMGs. I'm hoping Marty and EMG knock it out the park with this. I'm guessing they'll be based on the JB set, since he's used that for... years. Possibly sprinkle on some EMG 57/66 as well.
