Very easy to install!
VEZZLA, 24.02.2015
I installed these pickups into my Charvel 650Xl and the installation worked excellent and was very easy to do! The only negative thing about this set is that the wires which goes from the pickups are different in length, so I have to order one new, longer wire to be able to use to middle pickup, because the one I got was too short.
But except from that, this EMG Set is really worth buying if you own a HSS guitar.
The EMG 81 in the bridge gives you a really aggressive tone, perfect for all kinds of metal genres. And the SA pickups produces a warm and smooth tone, great for soloing.
And the clean sound on both the 81 and SA's are amazing.
As a metalhead myself i love these pickups! They really rock!

Nice set.
Henrik105, 10.10.2013
Well, you can't go wrong with 81. Single coils sound smooth and nice. Only thing I have to complain is bit too short wires for my Jackson dinky. Anyhow, I really enjoyed the solderless installation, it's brilliant!

Very good sound quality and product but found the cables from the pickups to the selector switch were to short for a solid body guitar.
