I’ve solely used EMG pickups my entire career. From the 909x all way to the 57/66 sets they’ve never failed me in tone, durability, and set up. They have such a wide variety of options and combinations for every tonal need I’ve ever come across ether it be live or in the studio.
EMG Gear used:
57/66 set for 6,7,8 string guitars
81/85 sets for 6,7,8 strings
