Hi,

I was looking at the EC-1000 and was wondering what type of pickups it has. Some people say it has two EMG 81s and some people say it has 81/60. I wanted to clarify on this, thanks.

you can get it with a pair of EMG 81s or the SD JB/59 combo

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

I always thought it was 81/60 and SD JB/59, never 81/81.

I heard that EMG pickups have EMG written in different colors for different pickups, is that true?

How it works as far as i know is the bursts have sd pups. The black and black cherry and snow white are 81/81 and the vintage black is 81/60

^So they changed up everything after the new models came in?
