FT: my EMG 85 for your EMG 60
2 Attachment(s)
Like the title says, I've got an EMG 85 I'm looking to trade for an EMG 60.

It's litterally like New. No scratches. No Problems.

It's the old stock logo, but has the quick connect 3 prongs in the back of it for the quick connect cable.

If you've got an EMG 60 you'd like to trade for the EMG 85, comment or PM me.

We can do an even trade.

Sorry, I don't have any pictures of it, but it really does work and look LIKE NEW.

Continental USA shipping ONLY

Thanks for looking. :cheers:

Why an EMG 60?!? why not a Fernandes Sustainer instead? if you must run active pickups, okay, I'd have to assume that you originally have this EMG 85 as either a pickup that already was in the neck position of a guitar, or was meant to go into the neck position (probably to get a similar tone to Zakk Wylde, Kerry King or one of the other many, many, many guys who use that same configuration)...& now you're looking to switch to an EMG 60 (which is what Jim Root of Slipknot runs), okay, so why not take out the EMG 81, KEEP the EMG 85, and then run the EMG 60 in the middle of an HHH guitar (Gibson or Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty Custom, Gibson or Epiphone Ace Frehley Signature Les Paul, Kramer Jersey Star, whatever...) I don't know...if you get the Fernandes Sustainer, at least then it's an Active pickup with a specific purpose (you ever see "This is Spinal Tap" where Nigel is showing his Guitars to Marty DeBergi & he points to the Les Paul & says "This guitar is famous for it's sustain, you could just play the note AHHHHHHHHHHH..., go & grab a bite to eat, come back & it's still going"...with the Fernandes Sustainer, that's (in theory), actually possible...sustain is infinite....

okay, this isn't me playing, I don't know this guy, this is just an example, I had nothing to do with it...I don't believe in active pickups & I have guitars with a floyd rose tremolo...but I most often play my '67 Gibson Flying V & my Fender Telecasters & those are both hard tail tremolos...

^ Thanks for the suggestion.
But I'm looking for an EMG 60 'cause I have one in my Ibby RG and I love the 81/60 combo.
These pickups are for a guitar build project I'm doing. I got a good deal on craigslist on an EMG 81/85. Didn't really like it, so I wanna put a pickup I know I love, which is the 60.

The guitar I'm working on has a no name guitar neck with a Jackson Dinky body. plays awesome but could use better tuners and the EMG 60.

Just personal preference I guess.

Thanks for the ideas though, bud. :cheers:
