Product Description

The EMG DG20 pickup set has been a staple in David Gilmour's main red strat for many years.
The DG20 comes with ivory SA single coil pickups, wired with an EXG Guitar Expander, an SPC Presence Control, and master volume all on a deluxe White Pearl pickguard with white knobs. The EMG-EXG Guitar Expander circuit increases the bass and treble while reducing the mids, perfect for chord definition at higher volumes, while the SPC makes the SA's sing by boosting the mids and turning your single coils into full blown humbucking!

This pickguard is AMAZING. It definitely brought my American Standard strat to life. Ordering another one for my MIM strat.

Useable tonal character for my Strat

Product Review

At first, I didn't like this loaded pickguard. That was due mostly to the difference that the EXG Guitar Expander and the SPC Presence Control. But I got used to those controls and found the tones I wanted and all is well. This pickguard will give your Strat new tonal possibilities. That's what I was looking for, so it works for me.

Great tone and punch. Definitely out do my stock mix pickups.

Product Review

If you want that extra something in your tone. My stock MiM pickups where missing something. They seemed to be dull and flat sounding. I do some Pink Floyd stuff along with some punchy music. They sing when clean and go from mild to wild with or without gain. I love them..probably will get another set.

Great sound and super easy installation

Product Review

Best sounding pickups I've ever had in an American Strat that I also bought through American Musical. Install took about 15 minutes and not only does my strat look better but far superior sounding to the stock pickups. No buzzing super tight and even sounds good playing high gain on my EVH III 50 watt combo, that again I bought through American Musical. Can't beat the no interest payment plans in my opinion!

Nice upgrade

Product Review

If you have a strat to spare than this is a great and fairly easy to install mod. Just bear in mind that your guitar won't sound like a pure strat anymore. it is a very interesting sound that you may find useful. The pickups are super quiet and being active have lots of punch. Make sure to use the no. 2 input on your amp. Not crazy about how it sounds through some pedals but generaly happy I have this fancy new sounding guitar now. Bottom line, I recommend it but not as a main axe.

Great set of pickups

Product Review

I purchased this product after contacting EMG directly. I put this set in a G&L legacy and admit it sounds great but I had to do a lot more than just remount them on a G&L pickguard. If you have this brand of guitar please note that you will have to route out the inside of your guitar. The size of the pcb board the controls are mounted on has a different curvature that causes the pcb board to stick out about a 1/2" to the right vs original passive electronics.
