I have these in my Schecter Hellraiser Sunsets and absolutely LOVE THEM! I have played the 81/85 and now the 81/60 combos and believe the 81/89 are simply THE BEST ALL AROUND for sound! The coil tap on the 89 has a better treble response along with CLARITY which is what makes my decision! I sometimes ask WHY but guess everyone has an opinion of perfect sound. I know for my style of playing/SHREDDING the 81TW/89 is PERFECT!
Batteries LAST a LONG TIME!

Even through it not the best pickup in the world. I believe the 89 still one of the best pickups I had tried from EMG.
The sound is pretty good through I would prefer the 85 than the 89. the sound is pretty 85ish but the aggressive and the power isn't in the 89. the coil-tapping does make up for the aggressive so it good. I like the sound when I play clean since it rich in clarity and has a very rich and warm sound to it
I like the coil-tapping and I believe that it is the maybe the most valueable feature in the guitar.

The pickup can be from the cleanest jazz in the jc-120 to the heaviest metal in the Mesa Boogie Triple Recificer
It has very good quality but it is not the best pickup i had used. I would rather have a Seymour Duncans passive pickup but the pickup is fine for me right now.
It is pretty expensive at $119 and I would like the pickup to be aleast 80. However it has alot of value since you can coil-tap and its versatility
I have not call EMG so i have no clue.
