Good for leads, a muddy mess for rhythm

By Sofly907

Pros

  • Good Tone Above 5th Fret
  • Looks Cool

Cons

  • Worthless For Rhythm

    Comments about EMG 60-X Active Humbucker Pickup:

    I bought this pickup to put in the neck position of my LP. Don't get me wrong, I like EMG and this pickup sounds great...but only above the 5th fret or so when playing with any overdrive/distortion. Below that the tone becomes a muddy noisey mess and is basically worthless for rhythm playing. This is not just my opinion, it is often the first comment I get from people who hear me attempt to play rhythm on the EMG 60x. I own numerous other guitars with active pickups; so I am aware that as the battery dies in an active pick up, the tone tends to get fuzzier. So for the record I have tried it with a fresh battery and the problem persists. The EMG 89XR in the bridge position has no tone problems and sounds amazing, I'm thinking about replacing the 60x with an 81x or even another 89x. EMG got close with this one, but BUYER BEWARE of the 60x and its fuzzy/muddy tone as a neck pickup.

        Comments about EMG 60-X Active Humbucker Pickup:

        Stellar sounding pickup. Dropped this in the neck position of one of my Les Paul Supreme's. I really love the sound of it. Smooth, silky, pristine. Sounds great through both lead and clean channels. The X series is great! They clean up nice like a passive when you roll of the volume. I'd be curious to try it in a bridge position. EMG rules.

        EMG 60-X

        By Tunde Kuponiyi

        from South Jersey

        Comments about EMG 60-X Active Humbucker Pickup:

        I play blues, R&B, metal and rock. I will not lie to you, this pickup is a very good one. This is my first EMG pickup so I cannot give a comparison to the older EMG 60, but I can tell you that this has a good clean tone (when the volume and tone is rolled back). Overdriven, this pickup still maintains its clarity while still having that nice, warm tone (think a more modern Warren Haynes tone).
        Extremely satisfied with the overdriven sound, and even more satisfied with the clean tones. Now you do have to roll back the volume and tone to get a clean tone. I have a bugera 6262 and I get pretty damn good clean tones, (not those metallica "cleans", I'm talking Isley Brothers type cleans). You have to pick/strum lightly though. I am very happy with the quality and I recommend this neck pickup.
        Kinda pricey for just one pickup, but oh well. I'm not complaining.

        Great replacement pickup!

        By Teletwist

        from Olathe, KS

        Comments about EMG 60-X Active Humbucker Pickup:

        I went out and grabbed one of these when I couldn't get much variety out of my ESP LTD Viper 400's stock configuration.It had dual EMG 81s, I replaced the neck p/u with this one - what a difference! The 60-X has a warm, velvety clean tone and has just the right amount of punch and texture when overdriven.If you already have EMGs in your axe the update is a snap; there is a solderless connector - just unplug the old and plug in the new. Then adjust the height to your desired tone/volume, and play away!
