alright, I've got an Epiphone G-400 I finally desided to change pickups in. I've been debating about a couple different pickups but I wanted to ask the EMG users out there about some of EMG's pickups. I'm focusing on the bridge position. I'm looking for a humbucker that gives you a metal/grungy sound but at the same time, I also want it to be crystal clear if I were to play my guitar clean. Any one know if EMG has a pickup that can do that?

I've been thinking about the 81. I've seen on musicians friend that there are pre orders for a coil tap 81. Think that would be any good?

hahahahaa. no. You pull up on a knob (Usually) and it splits the coil in the humbucker so that only one is active. Effectively making it a single coil pickup.

it's like a full humbucker, then you pull up on a knob and it turns into a single coil.

^ beat me to it.

Basically pulling up on the knob disables one of the 2 single coils in the humbucker. And yes, the EMG 81 is amazing in the bridge position.

1 - what amp do you have?
2 - don't bother mixing actives and passives, it's too much of a ballache.

To be honest I don't think you're going to get what you want from any one pickup, you need to look at changing both pickups to get the result you want.

I plan to change the neck positionas well, but I play more with the bridge pickup than anything.

Harmonic design P94 for the neck. Handles gain pretty well, and awesome cleans.

For the bridge get a hotter humbucker. Not very familiar with humbuckers, so I'll don't really have anything to say.

if ur going active a SD blackout or an EMG 81 would be awesome, if ur going passive i would say dimarzio super distortion or SD JB i believe is the one for the bridge
