EMG: 81

This is one of the most famous pickups around, and coming from EMG, you couldn't expect anything better. Kinda tricky to wire it though, but once you have wired two or three, it's like the alphabet.

EMG: 57/66 Humbucker Pickup Set

The 57 and 66 are exactly what I'm looking for. They were very easy to swap in, they are very versatile, and they sound great clean or dirty.

If you like a searing, modern sound, especially for lead work but haven't gone all the way over to the dark side of heavy metal, this may be a pickup you want to check out.

It is basically the standard EMG 81 85 with a bit of Zakk's "vibe" added is how they described it. I recommend these to any metal or rock guitarists who have some extra money.

EMG: 85

Its sound is, bluntly put, massive. As a humbucker, its made for being a rythm pickup and having a huge crunch to it. And that it does.

I wanted a pickup with as much punch but more clarity and brightness. The EMG 81-7X delivered just that!

The sound is very similar to an EMG 81/60 combo while distorted. It has much smoother and usable clean tones. Overall I find the tones to be pretty balanced.

This is the new EMG 81X, from the X-series. It's branded as a more dynamic pickup with a more headroom. The output is high, its a high output mic and there is no problem with playing the most heavy stuff.

EMG: SV Vintage Single Coil Active Pickup Set

It's a set of 3 single-coil pickups. The EMG-SV has "plucky" percussive attack, but much smoother, less scratchy distortion sound and more output.

EMG: KFK Set

The sound of these pickups is very clear, punchy, and powerful, with a killer attack. The active pickups need to be adjusted closer to the strings than passives, but they don't get muddy at close range as passive pickups do.
