Back in the early 80's adding a humbucker pickup to a Strat™ took off. Since then we've added just about every conceivable combination you can think of, and they're all available factory pre-wired. The S/S/81 brings together the classic 81 with two ceramic magnet loaded single coils for a combination that is both aggressive and articulate. Once you've decided on the system you want, it can either be fully or partially assembled depending on your guitar and the sound you want. Since all EMG's use a solderless wiring system, you can change your pickups easily at any time without any soldering.

Loud, Rude, And Aggressive!

Shawn /Reviewed 3/11/2017

I had this set installed in my Mexican Strat and WOW! These babies sound amazing on every level no matter if your playing on a clean channel or using a lot of gain. I use a Boss DX-!X through a Marshall MG30CFX and it just sounds bad ass. They transformed my factory strat into an incredibly versatile music making machine. I had mine installed by a professional luthier who had to make a few modifications to make them fit correctly in the pick guard so If you've never worked on guitars before I would recommend having them installed professionally. Great pickups, great sound, and hours of fun jamming. I would definitely recommend this set to any enthusiast.

Brutality on Demand!

David /Reviewed 1/20/2015

so I ordered these for my DK2 Dinky, which had some SD's and a Dimarzio bridge prior that just weren't cutting it so I ordered these to cut the b/s and get a good full tone and holy shit do these provide just that! the 81 is literally god's answer to life! my only issue/reason i can't give it 5 stars across the board is due to the fact that the pickup cables werent long enough for me to actually install all 3 pickups! right now i only have the neck and bridge installed because i had to use the long cable to reach the neck pickup and the mid cable was just a half inch short of reaching the middle pickup, but as a metal player when the hell am i going to use the mid pickup? just be forewarned of that one hiccup. besides that they're great!
