I have a MH-401FR with stock EMGs that I might've complained about previously. To add insult to injury, something is shorting out on the electronics or battery compartment, and since I am not really that much of a fan of actives I started thinking of just dumping these pickups out for passives. What would you guys suggest? I want aggressive, articulate and full tone. I guess kinda like Satriani on leads and Slayer on rhythm Any idea if I need to swap out the pots as well?
