Re: emgs or suhrs

I've been using EMGs for years, along with Duncans, but I've never tried Suhr pickups (mine has EMGs). EMGs have their detractors for sure, and right now it seems to be 'cool' to hate them, but I really like them, especially the 85 (the humbucker 'part' of an 89). I find the 85 to be really powerful and warm, but it has clarity which I love. Personally I'm not generally a fan of the 81, but it does work well in some guitars I've had. As I recall, in the 85 is Alnico, the 81 is ceramic, but I may be wrong there..
