This may very well make me look like an imbecile, but here goes nothing: I'm looking into getting an 8 string guitar, but I have one burning question regarding the pickups; why on earth would you use two identical ones in the same guitar? For example, why would you have two EMG 808X pickups together? Is the wiring for the bridge and neck different, allowing for different tones? I always though the pickups made the difference, not the position. Also, recommendations for a first 8 string are more than welcome!
