i have an old silvertone that i want to put some new pickups in.

for me its between EMG 81/85 or a gibson burstbucker on the neck pickups and muddy fingers in the bridge.

i just wanted to know how the cleans on EMG pickups usually are. (yes, i understand all guitars are different and set up and such is important)
wonderful.not real bright but if you boost the bass and mids they sound good,and the distortion is better also
Sterile. Not super lively, but really clean. Much of it depends on your eq, but it's not super dynamic.
