Hey guys,

Just outta curiosity I've been wondering what sort of set up James Hetfield has on his guitars. I read that he uses EMG 81's and 60's. Does anyone know which pickups go where on the guitar?

From what I've read...60's seem to be better suited to rhythm and 81's to lead. I have a hunch that he plays with the 60 in the bridge pickup, coz the treble sound is pretty heavy but I may be wrong.

What do you guys think?
