Hey guys so I've heard some of the demos of the DC800 stock pickups and they're okay but nothing more. I was definitely looking to replace them once i got the guitar. I've always been a fan of Bare Knuckles pickups (especially the Aftermath/Coldsweats sets) but I'm also open (kind of) to Active pickups. I really like having an open sound when I play as far as dynamics go. Do you guys think that EMG 808x's really sound as good as people say? I unfotunately haven't had the luxury of playing them and the soundclips I've heard haven't done them much justice. How would the 808x's stand up against the stock DC800 pickups? Also, how would the EMG808x's stand up against the Bare Knuckles stuff? Please pardon the scattered nature of this post you guys haha. Thanks!
