EMG 81

Love these pickups, have them on all my guitars in the bridge position. Obviously great for out and out metal ala Metallica, but also clean up really well.

If using on a 3 pickup guitar, and using the solderless connections be aware that you will also need the EMG 5 way switch. I didn't realise this at first, so then had to wait a few days while I ordered one before I could install. Easy enough to install too although I did end up soldering the connectors to the input jack (as I have an Ibanez with a barrel jack, otherwise you use the supplied Jack).
