Luke HSS – EMGs vs Dimarzios

Luke HSS – EMGs vs Dimarzios

Hi all.
I’m looking to pick up a Luke soon, and was wondering, for those who have played the Luke II and the Luke III, can you describe the differences between the EMG and pickups (talking about HSS config)?

I play a lot of clean funk rhthym guitar on the neck and neck+middle pickup positions. Can the EMGs cop a vintage style tone with the tone knob rolled off a bit, or are they more in the hi-fi realm? I like the idea of the Luke III with the built in boost, but the Luke IIs go for pretty cheap used, and I like the idea of having an EMG equipped guitar since I have never owned one.

Any feedback or input is appreciated!
