Which EMG combo should I get to go in my Gibson Les Paul Studio. I play metal (Trivium, Maiden, Metallica, SOAD) and rock (Green Day are NOT pop rock lol).

I'll be using a Marshall DSL 401.

85/60

I agree, only cause I prefer the midrange of the 85 over the scooped mid of the 81.

For all of you who said 81/60, why that over the 81/85?

60 has better cleans than 85.

that 81/85 combo is for metal bashing. ****ty cleans, and as he's playing rock and metal, he'd want a bit of versatility.

well the 60 has a realy bassy response nice cleans

the 85 has a super kick ass midrange which is nice both in the neck and bridge so when you get bored of the 85 in the neck then just switch em out(thats why i love EMGs quick connectes) the 85 cleans in the bridge are sweet too

the 81 its a really trebley pup that sounds good but i personally like the 85 as a bridge pup but the 81 sounds like **** in the neck (so thats why i use a 81/85 combo till i can afford a 60)

81/60 I like the clean sound more than on the 81/85. The overdrive is the same because I only use the bridge for metal drive.
