Hi, I bought a set of EMG 85/81 mics on a swedish ebay site for 50€ and brought the guitar and mics to a store to install the mics.
The guy there informed me that it wasn't EMG 85/81 Since the text should apparently be gold on one of the mics.
Now I didn't pay much so in not mad that I didn't get 85/81.
Any way to identify what emg mics these are?

According to this, the pickup in the pic is an 81. The 85 has a gold logo. Several of their pickups have silver logos so it could be something else, idk. I don't have much experience with EMGs.

My money would be on EMG 81/81. You definitely don't have an 85, 60, or 89 there.

Do the pickups have stickers on the rear?

Nope, the stickers were removed and he had put a sticker on each marking neck and bridge.
So it's definitely two 81 pickups? Well that sucks, but I can pick up a used 85 cheap.
