    One of the most popular EMG's the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilising powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering. Other recommended pairings include the classic 81/85 set-up and the versatile 81/60 combo.

    IN THE BOX - EMG'S EXCLUSIVE SOLDERLESS INSTALL SYSTEM: SPLIT SHAFT VOLUME/TONE CONTROL SET, OUTPUT JACK, BATTERY CLIP SET, SCREWS & SPRINGS.
