I spend like, 90% of my playing time these days (something I do to get my housemate to leave the house whenever I am home) doing the most obnoxious harmonic shit on my Explorer. And I have to say, in spite of all of EMGs flaws, the ridiculously crystalline (some would say icepicky ) harmonics have always been a high point in the 81's favor for me.
I would make love to them if I could.
Indeed. EMGs excel at pinch harmonics. Quite gloriously, I must say.
