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!
