    I was at EMG picking up my pickups and was drawn to the nicest Jackson I have ever seen. Behold, in front of me was a gorgeous Redwood topped Jackson 6 string sitting in its case waiting for a set of Hetfield pickups if I remember correctly. :metal:

    Such a stunning guitar. Stick some black hardware and a true hardtail on there and I might cry a little.

    Interesting pickup choice...

    I seriously doubt Misha is going o put an EMG in that. The only pickups he has played in the last few years are BKP's and the CL/LF set. Can't see him going active at all.

    I don't remember which video it was, but Misha said, "Batteries are for flashlights, not pickups!"

    So I doubt he's getting actives.

    What the heck made you think that?

    Awwwwesome guitar, though. :yum:

    That is even more unlikely.

    Well, if his guitar is in EMG offices, it makes sense to assume EMGs are going in...the weird part is Jackson could have put them there from the start.

    This isn't Misha's personal guitar though, is it? I thought Jackson sent it to him to use for recording some other project.

    edit: it was for Veil Of Maya production, or/also for touring and general use.

    Even if there will be EMGs in it... Who the hell cares? It's his decision either way. Also, I fiind the aesthetics on that guitar so-so at best. Just not my cup of tea. :shrug:

    Very sexy guitar but the inlays are a tad much.

    What does it take for you guys to believe EMGs are going in there. Do you think it was at the EMG office, you know the place where they have a lot of EMGs, for tea and crumpets? :lol:

    EMG's or not, that's one sexy guitar!

    Hell you could always stick crumpets in there instead of the pickups. :rolleyes: Haha
