EMG Pickups

 
EMG
Born in a Long Beach, California garage in the early 1970's, EMG pickups changed the fundamentals of pickup design by developing the 'active pickup'. Nearly 40 years later EMG has become the technology leader in active and passive pickup design. EMG products are still designed and built in California with the goal of creating the ultimate tool for reproducing your tone. It doesn't matter your level of playing, EMG has the right product to better your tone. Your tone starts here with EMG Pickups from American Musical Supply!
