EMG 81 Chrome

Ordered the Emg 81 chrome for my 07 white Ibanez SZ to spice it up a little. I love the emg sound it fits perfectly for my style of play and my gear. So this is more of a review of the great service provided by sweetwater. Two thumbs up for these guys for sure! Ordered the product, and minutes later got a call from my personal sales engineer Josh to verify my order. Nice touch that I wasn't expecting. He informed me they were out of the 81 chrome at the moment but should have some more in a few more days (which was not a problem for me.) The very next day I received an email that my product had shipped and was heading my way! Super professional and very quick service. Got my product in two days.
