so i was at my uncle's the other day, and he had a guitar with an EMG 81/85 set. i had never played a guitar with EMG's before and couldn't believe it. not only were the OD sounds great but the cleans were amazing! yet i'd always heard that EMG's had terrible clean tones?
so anyways i'm thinking of putting this same 81/85 set in my V, but i would have to keep the battery under the pickguard, which could be a pain in the ass to get to. But for the sounds i heard out of them, i'd say it's worth it.

comments?


also does anyone have any experience with the EMG 81TW? the one with the single coil split
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Nah, you could get a part routed out the back for this, or if theres room in the control cavity for one.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

id say go for it, i have emgs in my carvin bass (actives) and in my ibanez RG (passive) and i love the sound! now im only speaking for the bass but the batteries seem to last forever so batterie location is not to big of an issue

yeah i figured i would check the battery whenever i changed strings just to be safe and make it easier to do

As long as you unplug it when your done the battery can last about a year if you play it every day so it's not a big deal
