    The JB blows away the EMG 81 in my opinion. The EMG’s are fizzy and static, I hate that about them. The JB sounds really sweet and can do any style of music perfectly.

      That’s the reason why my newest axe is equipped with duncans and why I made this test. I also noticed that there are many people out there sharing the same opinion. So there must be something real about it… ;-)
