EMG Zakk Wylde Set Black

Active Pickup SetGuitar hero Zakk Wylde prefers the rare combination: Single Cut + EMG and sounds impressive with that. That's why the Zakk Wylde Pro Set consists of one EMG 81 for the bridge position (causing a long sustain and razor sharp attack - which is, despite being rare, important in combination with a high output pickup. It is just ideal for concise, thrilling lead lines and furious guitar art.) and one the EMG 85 (PAF model of EMG) for the somewhat tamer, bluesy sound on the neck position.

Everything else you need (potentiometer, cable jacks) is provided. The potentiometers are long models that fit properly into a single cut.
