For years, famed session guitarist and founding member of Toto, Steve Lukather relied on EMG guitar pickups in the studio and on the stage. The EMG SL20 Pro Series system features two of Steve's custom designed SLV single coil pickups and the EMG 85 humbucker with a master volume and tone. The SLV pickups are similar to the SAV pickups, but with increased coil windings for a meatier tone and pole pieces, not a bar, hidden under the solid cap for a more uniform look. When paired with the warm response of the EMG 85 humbucker, the result is a noiseless pickguard set that gives players all the diversity and response Steve Lukather demands.
This set utilizes two Alnico V loaded SLV single coils and an 85 humbucker set up with a single master volume and tone, all prewired onto a custom 11-hole black pearl pickguard with black knobs. This is the perfect set to go from smooth jazz to hard rock; clean and simple.
Prewired to the specifications of each artist utilizing emg's exclusive solderless install system (patent pending) complete and ready to mount to your guitar.
