Just got this the other day, got around to wiring it in the neck position tonight and did a quick bit of toss so you can hear its attributes!
There's some clean first, then some lead.
I actually had to question whether I'd wired it in properly because it was just SO strat-like. I totally wasn't expecting it, but it compliments the 81-7 so well it's unreal. Very happy with the results... unless of course I HAVE wired it in wrong, in which case - d'oh!
I'm not sure you can wire an EMG "wrong" and still get sound out of it.
