EMG releases Alexi Laiho signature pickup set

EMG has released The EMG-ALX with ABQ EQ/Boost, the new Alexi Laiho signature model. This is a newly designed EMG passive model custom wound and includes the new ABQ EQ/Boost which features a push (to activate) / pull (to deactivate) control. The ABQ has a 3 band EQ which can be adjusted for creating different tone settings. The boost output can be adjusted as well to add or subtract gain.

After extensive discussion with Alexi, EMG's founder, Rob Turner, created a set that was exactly what a true innovator in the world of heavy music was looking for. "This pickup and preamp combo meets Alexi's demands for something unique that includes high gain, solid tone and clarity to enhance his remarkable style"

Now, in one package, a player can get all the reliability and innovation that EMG is renowned for, and all the aggressive guitar tone that Alexi is so well known for. The set is available in a Floyd Rose version (F-ALX) and a standard Tuneamatic version (ALX). The EMG-ALX with ABQ EQ/Boost is only available at Authorized EMG dealers

I wish they would sell the abq boost separately. It would be real nice to have a jackson boost clone for much better passives like Bare Knuckle or Arcane. There's another in production, but it costs waaaay too much. I guess I'll buy the pickup for the boost and put it in something around here..... new build maybe? Can always pick up a PA-2 for $25.

I wish someone would put up a demo/review of this on youtube. I searched for hours after what the boost actually sounds like and what you can do with it to change your guitars sound but I just found forums where people said "this is great and I highly recommend this thing". I´m having trouble thinking of buying this since i don´t know how i sounds like. All i know is that it have a 3 band dip switch that works like the EQ on your amp(so I heard). So can someone PLEASE put up an instructional video somewhere and tell me what it does and how it sounds!
