Product Description

EMG’s Retro Active technology moves to the single coil arena. The Crossroads Set produces Strat tones reminiscent of legendary players like Clapton, Beck and Hendrix. Each pickup is voiced with a different resonant frequency giving an amazing balance when combined in positions 2 or 4 and all the blues tone you’re used to in position 1, 3 and 5. Players will enjoy all the benefits of active pickups with the dynamic response of vintage passives. Like EMG’s Retro Active Humbuckers you get vintage tone with no buzz or hum. Welcome to the classic Strat blues tone without the classic Strat noise.

Product Review

Its my first EMG install. I have other guitars with 81's installed but this edition isn't cold like the older Emg's. Install was straight forward, and easy. These pickups have close to 56 pickup bell tones with ZERO HUM. My only complaint is in the first position the bridge pickup is too bright. The bridge pickup has zero tone control like a few metal guitars. Rolling back on the volume will drop some high frequencies and still be usable. The first live show will be next week. I love my Roland Strat its also very quiet, but these pups in my reissue stomp all over the Roland Strat. In closing I am going to get the new retro humbucker set for my Les Paul Custom. These pups are a great product and a strong new product from EMG.
