    I am from Kolkata and I am new to this site. I need some help from the pros about an electric guitar.
    I intend to buy a CORT EVL Z4..... cost 22K
    I play hard rock, soft rock, punk, glam rock, blues, and many more
    But is this guitar good?
    I checked it has got EMGHZ humbackers....I never heard about it so need a little help.......
    But this is for future........
    I also intend to buy a new guitar within a month selling my Givson Lead 1, my budget for this guitar is 12K..... I found Avion AV1 to be around 12000.....
    But is it good for the genre I play???
    Thanks for your help.....And also SORRY for making it so big......:)

    CORT is decent but for rock and Roll you should be checking out ESP for that price and they come with EMG active pickups which are far better and also with a locking floyd rose tremolo system.

    To answer a part of your original question, the EMG HZ series is a passive humbucker series made by EMG. EMG is quite famous for producing high end pickups, most of which have been used by famous players like Mustainbe, Zakk Wylde etc etc.

    If it only comes to humbuckers, I'd say EMG is a good choice.

    Thanks guys...........
    I would like to go with a good guitar right now....
    Guitars with EMG, DiMarzio or Duncan pick-ups costs above 20K or something...
    I think I will replace the stock pick-ups with either DiMarzio or EMG81/85(active) later.... not sure yet which 1 i should go for....
    but still a little confused about what guitar to go for...
    Does AV3 come with Duncan pick-ups like AV6?
    and which amp would be better?-Marshall MG15CDR or Roland Cube 15x?
