    (or Trade For) EMGs

    My 81 loaded Explorer is just destroying every other guitar I have.

    It's puts the tone in testosterone.

    Anyways, looking for quick connect 81s/60s/Hs/HAs. Maybe 89s. Maybe any other humbuckers they made I might have forgot. No 85s though.

    I have two sets of Black Winters and a Custom/59 set. Trades are fine, but you are going to have to add cash on your end, since everyone hates EMGs and they go cheap and these are credible passives that were hyped on forums and thus worth more.

    Quick connect only.

    I remember when I was in high school (early 2000s) everyone and their mother wanted EMGs because Metallica, Slayer, and Zakk Wylde use them. Man have times changed.

    I wouldn't say times have changed. It's just the internet gave a very vocal minority a soapbox to espouse their ridiculous views.

    It's not like the fact that forums exists now entirely renders all the record/touring bands that used them and still use them obsolete.

    For my money, the 81 still sounds better than anything for extreme metal rhythms. There are some tones I just hear and salivate.
