hey, ive been looking into emg pups lately, kindof like everyone else. anyways, for a neck pickup ive settled on the 60A, but im a little biased against the 81, cus im pretty sure that absolutely everyone has it, and i hate sounding like other guitarists. so i realized that the custom shop 58 has a slightly lower resonant peak than the 81, which is already a fatty pickup, so the 58 should in theory be even fatter, which i love.

does anybody have any experience with the 58? or any other combination besides the 81-85, or 81-60?

According to the EMG website the 58 is more like a P-90 so the output wont be as high as the other pups even if the sound is fatter, so if you're going with it for a metal choice you might be better off with the standard 81 or 85 in it.
