I have long wanted a guitar with actives but completely unsure how they'd sound with overdrive pedals. Does anyone here you use actives with OD's? What is the good, bad, and the ugly? Thanks!
BOGUS! The reason i bought active p/u's in the first place was to drive the effects. They work fine with any kind of effect, and they're dead quiet on stage, and in the signal chain. EMG SA's in a strat back in the 80's, when everything was way overprocessed was the ticket then, and quite frankly it still works well today.
