I recently picked up this November 2008 #77/1000 Longhorn DC on whim. It was pretty strange to say the least, but hell has it been a great purchase.

Yeah sure, it has EMGs, but they aren't half bad. They actually sound pretty good with this guitar. It also come equipped with a Fishman piezo. Each individual saddle on the tune-o-matic has a pickup, and the 6 wires going back into the body are hidden underneath the bridge.

Most guitars I've played that had magnetic pickups and a piezo have one output. You'd need a stereo cable to really take advantage of blending the sounds, except this one has two outputs - obviously one for magnetic, one for piezo. I plugged the magnetic side into a Fender amp, the piezo side into a PA system and I was floored at how good it sounded. I love the flexibility of acoustic, electric, or both sounds. Also really helped that this is really resonant unplugged, and I was able to play (poorly) and record some quick guitar stuff for the lady friend to gush over so she wouldn't get mad at me for buying another guitar.

The black EMG's and the gold hardware look good together.
