The P81 is a high output pickup with a P-90 style housing and is designed especially for the lead guitarist. The P81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the P81 is the one.Although the P85 has more measurable output than the P81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The P85 uses two Alnico V magnet loaded coils in a P-90 style housing which provides a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a more expansive top end. This pickups has a great natural tone and works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of warm output but isn't muddy. It's a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an P81 in the bridge.
