EMG ZW Set is the iconic 81/85 combination used by guitar legends such as Zakk Wylde. Known the world over as one of the greatest guitar players ever, Zakk Wylde relies on his EMG 81/85 signature humbucker set for his aggressive tone and sustain.

EMG 81 will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix with its intensive tone, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. EMG 85 is made with Alnico 5 magnets and provides an exceptional powerful tone and versatility.

This classic setup comes complete with long shaft volume and tone controls for installation in Zakk’s beloved Les Paul or similar styled guitars. If you need short (or standard) shaft pots, they are available separately.

The package includes EMG's exclusive solderless install system for easy setup.
