Buy the pickups separately. The KFK set comes with an EMG 81, 85, and a gain boost switch (which you wouldn't need, according to your plans).

Just buy the 81, 85, AFB, and EXP. You'll have plenty of battery clips to do the 18v mod, and the soldering is all piss easy.

EMG 81
The EMG-81 is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.


EMG 85
Although the EMG-85 has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy lowend and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. Itís a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge, which is the same pickup combination used by Zakk Wylde.

In my experience, the 85 has more power in the low-mid register than the 81.

The 81 is pretty much the complete inverse. More in the upper-mids. Gives it a bit more clarity IMHO.

Again, IMHO, 81 > 85
