I'm looking to buy one and I have two choices (older and newer models I'm guessing?). I just want to know what the difference is between them. All I saw was different pickups. And what is the difference in sound between the EMG 81/85's and the 81TW/89's besides the coil tap?

I've done some reading and I hear the pickups sound exactly the same unless the coil tap function is used. Anyone know?
