    Hi there. I am currently building an 8 string guitar and I have not yet decieded what pickups it's going to have. I have heard very good critics of both EMG's 808x and Seymou Duncan's Blackouts, but, as I have no experience with any of these two pickups, I wanted to ask for advice before I buy anything. Any other recomendation will be thanked.

    I cannot speak for the EMG 808xs, but I have the 7 string versions of the Blackouts in my Siggery and they kill. Not sure how they compare to the 8 string version, but pretty similar I imagine...

    Clear, articulate and ridiculously punchy, I love em :)
