ok now I was woundering if I could use any 6string bass pickup other than the EMG-45DC for my 8-string guitar build, I found a MIGHTY MITE MMSA6-BKF 6 STRING ACTIVE PICKUP for 30 bucks and Im wounder if it would work and sound roughly the same as or better than the EMG

any ideas or tips?

I thought the MIGHTY MITE was a blade-type pickup, so if it is than it will work fine

Not unless you reduce the string spacing, and besides it's comparable to an EMG-85 in an EMG-35 sized housing and has seven-string spaced polepieces as opposed to blades. The EMG DCs have blades AFAIK.

As for 8-string pickups, try Lundgren.
