Based off the popular EMG 81, the 81-8X utilizes powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils along with the X preamp to produce even more detailed tone with incredible high end cut, headroom, and dynamic control. Traditionally used in the bridge position of your eight string guitar, this pickup will make your leads and low strings slice right through even the densest mix. Other recommended pairings include the 81-8X/808X setup and the versatile 81-8X/60-8X combo. EMG's solderless wiring makes installing your guitar pickups easier than ever.
