hi
i recently buy an emg81 and 85 and since i'm really bad in customizing i went to my local store to get it install. Now it's work fine, but i'm pretty sure the 85 is at the bridge and the 81 at the neck because they sound not as good as on other guitar i try with emg 81-85. So i just want to know if there is a way to identify the 2 pick-up without opening the guitar? Like the color of the EMG logo or something. One is gold and the other is silver, if it can help.

you might have a problem there
the 81 is for the bridge
the 85 is for the neck

that's just how they're designed .

I've heard of several bands using the OP's arrangement, ie Killswitch Engage.

If you don't like the arrangement, you can switch them fairly easily and without any soldering. You just have to detach the pickups from the body and pull off the "quick connector".
