Great guitarists have relied on EMG pickups in the studio and on stage for years. The SA Set combines the attributes of the early Strat™ sounds with added midrange response and higher output, giving the pickup bell-like harmonics and increased sustain.
This active single coil set, loaded with Alnico V bar magnets sounds bright and airy, with a rich bottom end. With internal shielding and a low impedance preamp, you get virtually noiseless pickups without sacrificing a true single coil tone. The Alnico V bar magnets allow for the output to remain balanced during big string bends that makes for a beautifully articulate tone. The creamy mid-range warmth creates sublime blues tones that are clear, strong and expressive.
Experience why players like David Gilmour, Steve Lukather, Larry Carlton play EMG single coil pickups.
