    Product Description

    EMG Zakk Wylde Pickup Set

    Unparalleled master of his instrument; he can rip it up from low "E" to high "E" and make it back in one piece without breaking a sweat. An inspiration to every aspiring guitar player and recognized the world over, Zakk does it with soul and with his signature EMG ZW set (81 + 85).

    Package Includes: EMG 81, EMG 85 plus EMG's exclusive solderless Quik-Connect system (cables (2), 25k long shaft volume/tone controls (2), screws & springs). Also includes 1 EMG / Zakk signature collectable guitar pick.

    Please note - the Zakk Wylde Set contains a set of regular EMG 81 & 85 pickups, with the long stem pots that are required for arch top guitars. The pickups aren't voiced especially for Zakk - they are just regular EMG 81 & 85's. Even if you're not a big Zakk fan, it's cheaper to buy the EMG 81 & 85 in this set than it is to buy them separately!!

    Monster death Metal Sound as I expected!!

    Mr Dominic Edwards26th Apr 2019

    These pickups sound amazing. They were a doddle to install with the supplied solderless pots , jack , wires and pickups into my Gibson les Paul standard. Clean tones are amazing and sounds rocking when my amps are cranked. Would totally recommend trying a set.

    Andrew Robertson31st Jan 2019

    Personally I'm not a great fan of active pickups so can't give it 5 stars but it's a very good kit for easy restoration back to original. So regardless of personal prejudice, highly recommended if it's your thang. Andertons service exemplary as always.

    Carl12th Jul 2016

    Pick ups are excellent, so clean and clear but with a serious amount of extra punch. Very versatile and really added a massive upgrade to my epiphone les Paul.

    Chris15th Mar 2016

    Improves any guitar you put them in with that powerful active clarity. Great for high gain but also amazing clean tones.
