    The 85 is one of EMG's first pickups and is the slightly more sophisticated and well rounded half of its famous twin, the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. Most often used in the rhythm position, the alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones to enable you to play the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. Try it in the bridge position for exceptional smoothness and soul. This pickup pairs well with just about every other humbucker in the EMG line. Give it a try and experience why it's been a top seller for so many years!
    IN THE BOX - EMG'S EXCLUSIVE SOLDERLESS INSTALL SYSTEM: SPLIT SHAFT VOLUME/TONE CONTROL SET, OUTPUT JACK, BATTERY CLIP SET, SCREWS & SPRINGS.
