I was fortunate enough to play one of the new Suhr Standard Legacy models yesterday (brilliant guitar!), and it got me thinking about the EMG’s for a custom Suhr I’m planning to order next year.

For a typical Strat “position 2” type of sound when both the middle and bridge pickups are selected, what would be the best option when using SA single coils? :-

1) 85 in the bridge with the “MK mod”, which apparently lowered the output and bass of the 85 when selected with the middle SA
2) 89 in the bridge, which in single coil mode apparently sounds similar to a SA
3) 89R in the bridge which is same as above, but with the single coil neck side rather than bridge side.

As an extra question, are the EMG X series worth a look? According to the EMG website, they “bridge the gap between active and passive pickups”.

Any help or opinions greatly appreciated! Thanks Smile
