    My new Arctic white MIM Strat w/ EMG 81/S/S pickups! I also added the locking Fender tuners. I think people either love or hate the pearl pickguard on white, but personally I think the combo looks fantastic.

    I'm in the hate pearloid camp. Look at it in the picture sitting on the couch with the Black one and think how much better it would look with a white pickguard :D.
    Nice pair of guitars!

    Haha, yeah. I may swap it for a white one at some point. The EMGs come with the pearl one.

    I've got its sister-LPG; EMG S/S/S. it's a nice, clean single-coil sound.

    I think they are great! The middle + neck produce a really nice clean tone, and The 81 produces a really good rock/metal rythm sound with high gain amp.

    Nice I was considering that one as well. I think S/S/S looks better. How is the bridge pup?
