So I know that I've touted EMGs for a long time (especially the X series), but last night I tried a bunch of regular EMGs in my guitars and AB'd them with a couple passives I also had (Seymour Duncans as well as Dimarzios) and I found that...

-81s had a tinny bottom end...

I thought since Chris has been posting Raw tones in the recto thread I'd post some up as well. :metal:
Tones aren't the greatest buy I am still in the process of breaking in the v30s in my stilleto...
This rg2228 is from the first run of 60 made to see if it would be a viable production model. Currently has lundgrens installed but i still have the stock pots and emgs. I don't have any pictures just yet but i will take some this weekend and post them, including close ups of anything that may...
Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:
Mid '00s Jackson DK2 in Eerie Dress Swirl with an EMG 81/S/S setup. Condition is about 8/10. It'd be higher, but the previous owner chipped the end of the headstock, as you can see in the pictures. Aside from that, it's in pretty excellent condition...

The most important upgrade to the AT has been performed. Now it just needs Locking Tuners/Better Bridge/A Mans Strap :lol:
I really can't reccommed the x series enough. People spend absurd amounts of time and money looking for really tight passive bridge pickups, but its...
There's a sexy guitar on eBay that I would like to make mine.
as such, these pickups must go!

Prices all include conus shipping.
EMG 85 - $45
EMG SA - $30 each (I have 3)
So I've discovered after a recent pickup swap that I really like EMGs for my high gain rhythm and lead sounds. So I'm pretty much planning on outfitting all my guitars with them at this point. What are good models for cleans (both humbucker and singlecoil?) in your experience?

So I decided that since I own and EMG 81, 85, & 60, I'd make a comparison between them. i also stumbled across Darren's reversable 18v mod, so i threw that In the mix as well.
There's the clip, it's basically 2...
