Product Description

The EMG 60 features the close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any EMG humbucking model.
The EMG 60 is incredible for rhythm guitar as metal and extreme players have discovered. James Hetfield's signature ESP models use EMG 60's because their distinctive crunch sets any rhythm player apart in the mix of a band that pumps a lot of mid-range from the stage.
 

EMG 60 Includes:
  • EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable
  • Pre-wired split shaft volume/tone control set
  • Output jack
  • Battery clip set
  • Screws & springs

The EMG 60 was originally designed for Fender in 1979 and was to be featured on the Tele-Elite Model as a mini-humbucking pickup. Fender changed their plans so EMG released the EMG 60 in a full size humbucking housing. The EMG 60 still features the close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any EMG humbucking model. Yet the EMG 60 packs plenty of output with both clarity and cut through high end. The EMG 60 is incredible for rhythm guitar as metal and extreme players have discovered.

After many years the EMG 60 has found its rightful home on James Hetfield's signature ESP models JH-2 and JH-3. Its distinctive crunch sets any rhythm player apart in the mix of a band that pumps a lot of mid-range from the stage. With a distinctive tone for soloing, the 60 works perfectly as a clear but fat lead pickup. The resonance slope is steeper but the peak is higher than other EMG Models. The 60 is the result of a lot of input from different people. It is probably the most versatile humbucking pickup EMG makes, but doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
