never tried the 57 66 but tried youtubing them especially in andy james guitar, i think they might be better for soloing.a couple people have told me theyre close to the het set but i doubt that a little ??
Can I have an 81 in the bridge with a 66 in the neck? That is actually the setup i want but I want the pickups to match. I think the 66 only comes in that PAF look with the pole pieces unlike the 81 which is just flat with no pole pieces. A little disapointing.
I voted the Emg 81/85 because I'm currently using the 85 as my bridge pickup which is awesome and using the 81 as my neck pickup but will be buying the Emg 60 to take the 81s place! I still love the Emg 57/66 set and that will be the next set I put in the next ESP I buy! ;)
