Was looking at getting a Carvin, wondered which Carvin PU's most closely resembled EMG 81/85

None really, carvin pickups are much more organic sounding. You can always sell the stock pickups and throw in an emg set. I have several carvins and the hottest pickups were the ones in my ultra V. Harmonics for days!
Custom guitars, vintage amps, boutique pedals. Blah, blah, blah.

Carvin makes actives, but nothing like an EMG. If you've really gotta have EMGs, you'll have to put them in yourself.
