      Comments about EMG 57-B Humbucker Guitar Bridge Pickup:

      My review will be pretty limited. I used this to replace an EMG 81 in the bridge of my gibson sg. I use this position for metal. My EVH 5153 mini stack does not have a lot of booming bottom end, and my 81 sounded thin on this amp compared to other pickups. My experience refers to heavy riffing under high gain on channel 3. The 57 was a plug n play swap, and was instantly recognizably different. Much more testicular fortitude, yet retains the compressed tone and quick attack that emgs do so naturally.

      My take in short, it sounds like an 81 with beef added. Exactly what I was looking for.

        Comments about EMG 57-B Humbucker Guitar Bridge Pickup:

        pickup wont work with so called "soder-less" system...... the wiring is to short for most guitars so will require extra soldering as opposed to none...... wiring in diagrams to attach pickup was not in the wiring kit, and once the piuckup is installed it simply will not perform......
        i started by simply plugging in the 57 where my emg 81 was.... that did not work, the guitar was 60% quieter and picked up no gain or volume at all.... i tried replacing the battery... same story.

        I tried to use the new wires in the box for the guitar i had (one pickup one volume simple) set it up..... the wiring is not long enough to reach the pickup from the input......so i soldered this part to find the next peice of wiring i needed was not in the box although on the list.......called with no answer..... emailed also no answer (at a week ago now)tried again no answer....... so i go to my guitar tech and get the wiring i needed...... plugged it in... same problems no volume no pickup from the gain or any effects.......... this pickup would be useless in a live situation.........

            Ive been trying out all sorts of pickups both passive and active. The 57 is amazing for all sorts of applications, but I mainly use it for metal, great response, aggressive punch, harmonics are even better than the 81, clean tones don't break up, its a great pick up all around.
