Hey
Would it be a wise decision to buy a EMG 81 pickup to use in my Epi Goldtop. I really love the sound of the EMG pickups, just want to know if it would be worth the trouble.
Thanx

Sorry,I just wondered,since this is an german messag board and you wrote in Englisch,that confused me a little bit.:redface:
As said you can use them in any Guitar but if you do,you should put two in because it's not that good to run a guitar with one acrive and one passive Pickup.It's possible but the Emg will be much louder than the the other pu.And since we're talking about a Les Paul you need special longshaft potis(Volume and tone).I'd recommend to buy an Emg Zakk wylde Set because it contains two active pu's and the required potis.

My english is very bad, but i try.

I think the Epiphone Goldtop has P90 PickUps. ANd this PickUps have another size as an EMG. I think that would be a problen. But i am not sure.

[EDIT] I believe, that EMG have special EMG PickUps with the P90 size. But i am not sure.

Die Goldtop gibts auch mit normalen Humbuckern

@Henry: Which Goldtop got you? With P-90 Single Coils or Humbuckers?
If you got Humbuckers there would be no Problem.

Greetings Ibanezzer

I am from South Africa.I hace the Humber model. I'm not shure what type, that is if there is a differance between humbuckers. I bought my Goldtop at a shop and it has Gibson Designed pickups in, not shure which ones, all the others had soap bar pickups, and this one soundes MUCH better. So if there is indeed a differancec in sizes etc. i'll try to find out which ones they are.

If you got this Epiphone with P90 Pickups you would have a problem:
http://www.epiphone.com/default.asp?ProductID=50&CollectionID=6

But if your Epiphone got these kind of Pickups then there will be no problem to change them with EMGs:
http://www.epiphone.com/default.asp?ProductID=212&CollectionID=6

But I would change both Pickups, because there would be a volume difference between the two.
I would recommend you this EMG Zakk Wylde set:

Nö, bin leider nicht Bernd ;)

Aber er ist mein Vorbild und spielt meine Traumgitarre (die Gibson Melody Maker auf meinem Avatar)


@ Henry: A picture of your guitar would be a help for us.

Hm...Emg's in a goldtop :D . It might look some kind of strange but true - the set EMG 81/85 is the right decision. You'll get a freakin' kick ass rock guitar out of that - i promise.

I dont think it will look strange at all :twisted: The pickups I have at the moment are black (Gibson), and they look totally sick! So I think the EMG ones should look even better :rolleyes: Last question, in the ZAKK WYLDE set, which one is the bridge and which one is the neck pickup? Can I choose?

The 85-er ist for the neck-position , 81-er is for the bridge-position.
if u switch them it will sound ''wrong'' :D
