The EMG-S pickup features a single ceramic magnet. It has the equivalent output of other single coil guitar pickups but the EMG-S features a brighter tone quality accentuated in the upper middle to high frequency response (similar to later model Strat pickups). By using the EMG Tone Modeling technique, the EMG-S has a "sparkle" with added definition for depth and increased sensitivity. Country artists such as Vince Gill prefer the EMG-S pickup because it can translate a player's technique faithfully.

Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cables (3), prewired control set including volume, 2 tone controls, 5-way selection switch (black & white knobs), output jack, and battery clip, screws & springs.

      Comments about EMG-S Ceramic Single Coil Active Pickup:

      Was so excited to get my new EMG pickups for my 93 Jackson Pro, that is until I went to hook them up. I specifically bought the EMG-S single coil for the fact that description claimed it came with the 5 way quick connect toggle switch for 3 pickup setup. However, the 5-way did not come with the pickup. 3 phone calls to Customer Service over 2 weeks to find out that EMG only supplies that with sets, and I would have to pay for it if I still wanted it. Disappointed that it took 2 weeks to find that out in first place, then to find out it was going to cost me more when it was supposed to be included. I'll pay for the part as I do need it, could've saved in the long run on this one had I gone direct thru EMG and purchased the custom set I needed. Still waiting for part so can't say for sure how sounds in my guitar. Will repost once get my switch.

      Comments about EMG-S Ceramic Single Coil Active Pickup:

      I Bought two of these to pair with an EMG 85 to go into my mexican strat. The tone from these is phenomenal. They produce great cleans (contrary to what alot of people say) and I've found that with good tweaking they can do just about any genre-they're great for blues, classic rock, etc.
