Ignore the negative comments....

Let me give my take on these AWESOME pickups. These are rockets! I mean they scream. I put these in my Les Paul and WOW! Sustain, pinch harmonics... And a great , rich tone. I play several styles of music and these are great for Metal, Blues, Classic Rock. Despite the negative comments I have read about the 81/85 set sounding sterile, lifeless or dull let me give you the truth. Plain and simple these pickups sound great clean. I use a Black Label Chorus for my clean tone and the sound with these 81/85's is crystal clear. Full , rich tone. I bought these because I love the sound. True, I am a huge Zakk Wylde fan but these guys just sound so good it doesn't matter who plays them. They are just that good! I will ONLY put EMG 81/85's in my Les Paul. So go ahead and take your tone to the next level!!!

exactly what i needed

I recently got these and installed them into my les paul and as soon as i flipped my amp on it was exactly what i was looking for and what my guitar needed to bring it to life.and the solder less install is soo easy.Sweetwater got these out to me really fast and i had them in myself and my guitar plugged in and was playing in no time.Sweetwater is the best and if your looking for some nice active pickups these are the ticket.

They were just as I expected. Put these pups in my Epiphone Zakk bullseye, now it feels true.

Great set of pickups

These pickups really pack a nice punch! I'm not into Zakk Wylde's music very much so I was hesitant to purchase these. I'm glad I did though. If you are into any form of Rock music, and want a killer Rock distortion tone, or a glassy clean tone, these are for you.
