Perfect pickups!

20.10.2016
I bought these in the hope for tight low end and lead that can cut through the mix and string separation.

EMG 808X where perfect for this and were better than I originally thought even from YouTube reviews.

I highly recommend these for any player and guitar as you get a professional quality sound for a very reasonable price!

They were also easy to install! Took me less than ten minutes compared to the dimarzio Illuminators I had bought which in all honesty just caused me major problems!

So from now on, I will always pick EMG just down to the experience I've had with them from the start has been great and still getting better! I've had nothing but Pros from these pickups and no cons at all!

Replace the pickup

30.03.2016
Most buyers think for sure, is an exchange of the 808 to the 808-X meaningful and is it worth the money?

For me there is only the answer: "In any case". The difference between the two is immediately heard and felt. In matters of clean and distortion, the pickups are much clearer and much more dynamic. I will not play any more EMG's without the X at the end.
