I'll be putting an EMG 81/85 in my guitar soon, I'm just wondering which setup you guys would prefer relating to which one to put by neck and which one to pu by the bridge.

usually the 81 (higher output) goes in the bridge position, and the 85 (lower output) is put in the neck position.


Ah, thats incorrect Im afraid...
Yes the '81 would be more ideal for the bridge... I think, but the '85 actually has a bit more output.



EMG-85

"Although the EMG-85 has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different."

^^thats from the emg website.

woops
I didn't realize the 85 has more output, I just knew it's usually put in the neck position over the 81, and that the neck position pups often (but apparantly not in all cases) have a lower output...
Thanks for clearing that up, though, now I know....
