Extremely versatile with built-in coil-splitting.

EMG is proud to introduce the new Gary Holt signature pickup set, the EMG GH Set. Gary has been a long time EMG artist from his earliest days playing lead guitar in San Francisco bay area metal band, Exodus. Now also a permanent member of Slayer, Gary Holt has earned his place in metal history and the GH set exemplifies his sound and look.

For years EMG has created custom red pickup caps just for Gary Holt, now, thanks to him, the Red Series EMG pickups are available to the public. The GH set includes an EMG 81 in the bridge and an EMG 89R in the neck position. The 81 provides all the crunch and tight sustain Gary needs. The 89R plays double duty as a humbucker and a single coil with its own preamp and coil for true single coil tones with no hum. The GH Set gives players multiple tonal options that scream to be played.

Comments about EMG Gary Holt Active Guitar Pickup Set:

Loving this set! It's a modern tone to the EMG 81. Nice and heavy, great for metal and thrash metal. Not so much for girndcore or death metal. The 89R is warm with a great low end, the split coil makes a really good clean sound. Overall the selling point it the color, yes red! Looks gnarly on a black guitar.
