    Comments about EMG 57-B Humbucker Guitar Bridge Pickup:

    I replaced an EMG 81 that was in the Bridge position in my 2010 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro. It seems a little more powerful than the 81, much more definition, pick attack and picking clarity. It sounds like they combined an 81 with a Gibson 57 Classic. Yes, it literally sounds that good!

    This pickup is at home in the Melodic Death Metal, Swedish Death Metal, Metalcore, Hardcore Metal and Viking Metal genres! Don't waste your money on the trendy pickups that the famous youtube reviewers demo on their channels. Hype and trends don't make a great pickup sound amazing!

    Missed on the wide spacing

    Comments about EMG 57-B Humbucker Guitar Bridge Pickup:

    Love the sound great pickup. However if you install this in a wide spaced guitar Fender PRS etc. The pole pieces will not line up correctly on the low E string. This leads to a lack on responsiveness and drop in volume on that string.

    Best of both worlds

    By Steven Taylor

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about EMG 57-B Humbucker Guitar Bridge Pickup:

    This pickup is simply amazing, and sound as good as they look. all the clarity and tone of a passive, with all of the head room and punch of an active. I play metal with my 57, and so do great metal players like Andy James and Richie Faulkner, but these are perfect for any genre because of the diversity of tones available to a pickup that is both active and passive. Truly a modern classic.
