I'm about to replace the pickups on my RG, and really liked the sound of the EMG JH set, but I've been doing some reading and I'm finding the 81x/60x set interesting, but I can't find any review's online of the 81x/60x set. Has anyone every had any experience with the these two different sets of EMGs ?

Anyone have a link to a demo/review of the 81x/60x set?

Thanks in advance!

This is the best demo that I could find for the EMG X series. It's a demo of multiple actives, but the link will take you straight to the EMG X section. In that vid is the Seymour Duncan Blackouts, and the regular EMG's.

From what I've heard (some YT vids), the JH set is really sweet. I'm sure it'll come down to personal preference on what pickup you'll like more.

This might not be much help, as I only have the 81x. But the one I've tried definitely lives up to all the hype emg talks about it. Lots of headroom, just smoother and more gain and response than my regular 81.

heres a youtube video between the x and regular series; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5W5iRJMl8E

here's an 81x 60x review; http://www.guitarplayer.com/article/emg-81x-60x-pickups/1231

Hope this helps a bit.

JH set is regular EMG with covers. Just like Zakk set is regular 81/85.
