why?


Because its basically a prototype. It's noisy and doesn't sound great (from what little I've heard).
As with anything, there's a reason you never hear anyyhing about it.

Can you buy 58s? EMG state "The 58 is one of EMG's original humbucking designs that was abandoned because it was too noisy."

You're not talking about the 85 are you?
