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.
The EMG-S System has a bright tone quality that’s accentuated in the upper middle and high frequency response regions like that of later model Strat* pickups. Ceramic magnets give clear, sparkling highs without brittleness. The S delivers the "Strat® Sound" with added definition, brightness, and sensitivity of attack.
Package Includes: EMG’s exclusive Quik-Connect™ cables (3), prewired control set including volume, 2 tone controls, 5-way selection switch (black & white knobs), output jack, and battery clip, screws & springs (for sets with EMG-89, substitute push/pull control for volume control).
