Report Are Fender Noiseless Pickups Really Noiseless? in Electronics Chat Posted February 15, 2008 I can't express how happy I am with these pickups. I also finally got some EMGs in my les paul. They sound pretty crazy. I can't believe how hot they are. I think I may have a kill switch installed. Even with the volume all the way down on my guitar, it puts out a little clean sound.
