EMG

An active 7-string humbucker that's ideal for rhythm guitar in genres from blues to hard rock.

The EMG 60-7X 7-string active guitar pickup packs plenty of output with both clarity and a distinctive crunch. It has these characteristics because of close-aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any of EMG's 7-string humbucking models. This 7-string guitar pickup is most often used for rhythm guitar as its tonal characteristics enable it to achieve everything from nice, clean bluesy tones to hard-rocking crunchiness. Pair the 60-7X with EMG's 81-7 pickup and you have yourself a versatile creation that will make your guitar sing.

The 60-7X and other EMG pickups from the X-Series provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG 60-7X guitar pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.

The EMG 60-7X guitar pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System, a split shaft volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, plus screws and springs.

Features

  • Active 7-string humbucker
  • Ceramic magnets

Don't settle for muddy tone on the low end of your 7-string anymore when you order the 60-7X today.

Lots of attack but no warmth

By cindi maines

from Undisclosed

Comments about EMG 60-7X 7-String Active Guitar Pickup:

This pickup has a ton of high end. You can hear every little thing your picking hand does.
But this pickup has no real tonal warmth. It is more "organic" and more like a passive pickup but its not enough to matter. It really depends on the sound you want but i would go with a 707x or an 81-7x if i had it to do over .

Diamond in the Rough...

Comments about EMG 60-7X 7-String Active Guitar Pickup:

I went out on a limb and purchased this for a custom seven string prototype i was building with an ash body and walnut top, wenge neck and ebony fretboard. This is a very underrated pickup. When most people think of EMG they'll think of the 81 or 85. if both those pickups had a child it would be this. This pickup has the most character i've had (i've played 81, 85's) its articulate and has the best cleans of any of the emg pickups i've played - most people complain about emgs being terrible on clean. Distorted this pickup has such a bite. very tight low end and enough mids to cut with the highs not sounding shrill or harsh at all. for heavy music its amazing and i'll probably buy another for my next build. hope this helps.
