      Organic and open tone with clarity and response.

      Both utilize powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils and are powered by a newly designed preamp. The 81X bridge pickup shines with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high-end cut, and fluid sustain. The 60X in the neck provides full treble response for distinct single-note solos and buttery harmonic overtones that will add some serious meat to your playing.

          Comments about EMG 81X/60X Custom Humbucker Set:

          I have many guitars and usually buy guitars that sounds great already and have no intentions to mod or make changes. However I bought a guitar online and the sound was not to my expectations. I did the research and decided this combo would cover my intended sonic signature. Installation was a snap thanks to the modular system and excellent printed instructions and layouts. I will tell you know that if you have a single cutaway guitar (think Les Paul or close to that design) these will change your life. I play alot of heavier rock/metal as well as cleaner classic rock. These pickups respond excellent to rolling off and adding volume to control distortion. They also keep the volume pretty resonalble when rolling off as well. If you play a lot and gig you know this is vital to live playing, allowing you to play crunchy for rhythym and molten, singing leads without footswitching is nice. I hope this helps to guide you, I have had the 81/85s and they are good. I think you will agree this setup offers more sonic territory and a better sound especially the pickup volume when switching from the neck to the bridge (common complaint from 81/85 users). CJWII
