OVERVIEW

Great for heavy rock.

The S4 is a rail-design pickup with side-by-side coils, a ceramic magnet, and a solid cover cap. It's not overwound like most rail pickups, for beefier low-end and midrange, but has the crisp highs of a traditional single-coil pickup. This HZ pickup has EMG's exclusive 5-wire Quik-Connect output allowing any number of wiring combinations, and is fully shielded for a minimum of noise. String grounding is recommended to further decrease noise. Comes in black.

Comments about EMG S4 Passive Rail Single-Coil Replacement Electric Guitar Pickup:

I installed one of these between an H4A & a H4, the humbuckers are ok,but the S4 is garbage!The sound is just so limp,the pick attack is light,& the sustain is absolutely horrible.The solderless pickups are super easy to install,so I wondered if I had an issue with the connectors so I soldered the wires straight to the outputs-no change.Clean tones were so-so,but the real problem is any overdrive-weak & muddy.It could have been defective,but I dont care, I dropped the Dimarzio Air Norton S between a Liquifire & Crunch Lab for nearly the same price-problem solved.Back to the drawing board EMG!
