EMG 85X has an organic and open voice thanks to the added headroom and response known to all EMG X pickups. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85X is a powerful guitar pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. The Alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones enabling you to play everything from the blues to the most extreme metal.

Although often used in the neck position, make no mistake, the EMG 85X sounds great as a bridge humbucker thanks to its exceptional smoothness and soul. This pickup pairs well with just about every other pickup in EMG’s lineup.

EMG's solderless installation makes swapping your guitar pickups easier than ever.
