Used to own the Zakk Gibson. Guitar was very heavy with a fast neck and these pickups were great but didn't seem to surpass your usual EMG's too much. They did seem a bit clearer.

This set of EMG's really brought the sound of my Epiphone Les Paul Studio Goth out of the gutter. I'm using a Fender Mustang IV ver.1 and compared to the stock pickups in my Ibanez RG series and artcore the Epiphone was sounding really fuzzy and harsh. Now I'm rocking it out as my daily banger. The sounds are really bright and nice, the sustain is excellent. When you turn the gain and the distortion up, it really screams. I'm really happy with this purchase and would recommend these to anyone wanting to upgrade their starter guitar.

Honestly can't understand why people hate on EMG's. They are a bit of a niche market but I built my own guitar last year and through these in this because I play metal and just wanted to try them out. I was BLOWN away. These pickups shine when playing clean all the way to heavy distortion. I use these in jazz band and when my teacher saw me show up with a flying v he said "You plan to play jazz on THAT?!" after rehearsal he told me how amazing it sounded! Versatile, clear tone and will never let you down. Get em. Also solder free installation is quick and painless.

these pickups are awesome even tho i do agree with many people that they do make every guitar sound the same-ish depends on the guitar i had 2 guitars with emg 81/85 the zakk wylde combo and one sounded different than the other both professionally put it by guitar techs and the sound difference I believe is in the type of wood the guitar is made from.i have them in my razorback and they sound pretty good minus i cant change the tone because i have the afterburner in the guitar aswell
