The 60 if you want a humbucker, but the singles like the SA sound sweet as well. Depending on the configuration of your guitar of course.

85s are rubbish for it 81 is ok cos it tidies up the bass on it but 60 is best cos its weaker than the other two and more balanced without a doubt
#7
i have two 81´s i want to replace the neck with some good clean sounding pickup.i like satriani......i used to play metal now im into everything that sounds god to me but i love satriani style.

check out PASSIVE bareknuckle warpigs they have some stupid output which rivals EMGs, like 20 or something stupid Also you can get them in ceramic or alinco V, much better sounding and will clean up for cleans no problem.

60A, or H(A) if you prefer a single-coil like tone.

^I doubt it would be the best clean pickup in the world. Otherwise I think we'd see every jazz player using one otherwise...

I could easily see the combination of one of the better-clean EMGs and something like a Fender Steel King being successful in a jazz environment, to be honest.

I think that, if you're wanting cleans from an EMG, and you want them to be pretty nice, you should be looking in to the SAs. Not really fond of EMGs at all, particularly the clean tone, but that's more a matter of personal preference, really.

The EMG 91 was actually designed by a jazz guitarist for archtop players.

MANTAJAZZ, what if you adjusted the pickup height?

all i know about pickup height is that emgs work best as close as possible to pickup becouse they dont have as much magnetism as passive pickups.
#23
so can anyone answer is there a big volume difference between the EMG 81 and pickup.i relly would like to have a single coil sound on my guitar and the cheapest thing to do,well at least ithink it is, is to replace the neck 82 with H or HA pickup.soi repeat; so can anyone answer is there a big volume difference between the EMG 81 and H pickup!!!!!please!!!!

There probably will be yes, purely because no passive pickup can really match the output of an active; they have a preamp built in to shape the tone and boost the output. How pronounced the difference would be I don't know but there probably would be.

I didn't know that! Probably has more to do with me not liking EMGs tone. Actually they might make great jazz pickups, they're very transparent. That's probably why I don't like them.

there is nothing to like about emg 81 85 cleans becouse they are "souless".the 91 is probably another story...........so 60,89 and H,HA anyone has another idea.come on people help......i want an active pickup to replace the 81 neck pickup with some other that will have the sound so i can play even blues on it.......come on ...the bridge pickup is also an 81.

the 85's cleans are pretty nice. and so are the 60's from those who use them.

but EMG H is an active pickup


Having taken a closer look at the EMG website and stopped assuming that you mean HZ I will now say the exact same thing but for a different reason, being that it's a single coil in a humbucker housing and no single coil can match up to a humbucker for output.

I figured I'd be hearing a lot more people recommend the 89.


Yea, it's kick ass; the sound of the 85, with the ability to get a sound like the SA (I think EMG actually describes it as two SAs wound together).

And for questions on the H's output, I don't really know how it would be with another EMG, but Kurt Ballou of Converge uses and 81/H combo in most of his guitars, and switches pickups a bunch it seems, so I'm guessing it can keep up volume-wise.
