Hey, basically I have been using EMG's (No sure of the modles) that are about 35 years old, and for the past two years they've sounded amazing.
-Recently my bridge pickup has gotten' a "wind tunnel" sound when I switch to it, it's really annoying, and I have a sense my neck pickup is much more murkey sounding than before.
--I took the guitat to local music store to work on the electrical sys. and didn't help.
---So now I'm deciding on buying new EMG's (81 & 85), wondering if anyone has had this happen to them and has a remedy, or do I need to spend the 200$?
----The guitar shop said my pickups are probably shot out, and/or just really old.

Thanks, sorry bought the length of this message
