The EMG JH Set James Hetfield Humbucker Pickups are a totally new dimension for EMG with the design being driven solely with the input of James Hetfield. In early 2009 James contacted EMG Pickups president Rob Turner and presented him with a challenge: to create a stealth looking set that didn't resemble anything on the market and still retained that legendary tone that molded a generation.
The EMG JH Set consists of the JH-N (neck) and the JH-B (bridge). Both pickups were patterned after the pickups James has used for 30 years but the end result was a completely different animal. The JH-N has individual ceramic poles and bobbins that feature a larger core and are taller than the EMG 60. This produces more attack, higher output, and fuller low end in the neck position. The JH-B uses the same type of core but steel pole pieces. This produces the familiar tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner low end. In addition, the set comes in a new sleek Black nickel plated caps and EMG’s Solderless Installation components.
