    If you want to sound like Syn, you should use the same pickups as him, which (as you know) are Seymour Duncan Invaders. Invaders are very different from EMGs. Invaders are high output passive pickups with three ceramic magnets. EMGs are active pickups that run on batteries.

    On the other hand, if you want to sound like Zacky, you should probably use Seymour Duncan's JB pickup. That's what he uses. It's also a high output passive pickup, like the Invader, but it uses a single Alnico 5 magnet.
