The EMG KH20 system joins the EMG 81 with a pair of EMG S single-coil pickups.
These pickups are all built around ceramic magnets for the tightest, most controlled sound. They're mated with a five-position switch and master volume and tone controls. The KH20 comes pre-assembled on a custom Pearl White pickguard with contrasting black knobs.

Product Review

You can play anything from blues to metal with this combination of pickups, comes with everything you need plug and play hookups so no soldering needed fit my strat like a glove, the pickguard itself is good quality doesn't look cheesy like most cheaper pickguards. The pickups themselves no noise advantage of having actives, the two single coils sound great you won't get them very chimey like 50s strat single coils, the humbucker sounds great and warm tone. The pickup selector is a five way overall the construction is very nice sounds good clean or with the gain cranked

Easy instal with punch

Your general opinion of this product.

It's a snap to install it took me more time to unstring and re string and tune then the new unit took to install. Great craftsmanship packs a punch awesome crunch due to the double hum..

First quality the pick guard ads a nice touch to my black strat. The controls are sturdy and smooth.

Packs a nice crunch, punch, and is chunky as it gets due to the onboard powered preamp.

It's bright and snappy as well as dark as a your favorite Metallica song. If you want a pickup set that will go clean as spring water this might not be for you there is distortion in the full range of the power band, it's every part of edgy like a Hotfinger Gibson pickup so if your looking for a way to turn your strat into a dragon slayer that takes no prisoners this is just what you have been looking for.

Pickups are fully adjustable of course.

Finish is top notch Kirt would put his name on nothing less it WILL ad aesthetic appeal to your strat and with the single tone knob makes it look very custom it doesn't look like you just threw a double hummer on it . Makes it look like you checked your strat into a custom shop and definentily spent more than the 250 price tag on this easier to instal than strings item. "Plug and play no soldering required" technology is awesome..

I imagine that the top notch wiring and dependable EMS pickups switch and knobs will last as long as you don't light it on fire then smash it through every speaker on a Marshall double stack then throw it in a swimming pool. But I would check it anyway just to make sure your not throwing away a perfectly good electrical set up.

Simple and Effective

Wiring set-up is very simple, only thing they leave out is exactly what to do with the 9V battery. It fit in just fine, but it would be nice if there was more instruction on what to do other than just cram it in there somewhere.

Only had it a few weeks, but I don't foresee any particular problems unless wiring connectors don't stay put.

Your general opinion of this product.

Got exactly what I expected. An easy to install upgrade for my MIM Fat Strat. Has a lot tighter sound for playing heavy styles of music, but will play clean nicely as well.

Switch feels solid, knobs feel very smooth through their action. Nice and solid.

Wide range of sound, I mainly wanted it for heavier rock/Metallica style music and it definately works well for that. Gets good harmonics even on neck setting.

Nothing to go wrong here, standard pearl white pick guard with black knobs. Would be nice if it came with black hardware since no local stores have black hardware in stock.

Nothing complicated. Took a total of 25 minutes to install, and that includes removing old strings and making some other adjustments to trem at the same time.
