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 :lol:) harmonics have always been a high point in the 81's favor for me.

I would make love to them if I could.

^ Depends on the sub genre, but I largely agree. The 81 is such an undisputed classic. People forget that it's a speed metal legend. 81 is the sound on Painkiller. Also a shoe in for anything deathy or some forms of thrash.


I fucking hate them for leads, but playing an 81 for rhythms will always put a smile on my face. Sure you get tired of it after a while and it has some bad qualities, but the razor attack is sick as fuck.
