EMG

A set of three single-coil pickups with the vintage Strat tone and look enthusiasts love plus preamp technology that professionals desire.

The EMG SAVX set of single-coil guitar pickups have the tone, clarity, responsiveness, and look that vintage enthusiasts will appreciate. All this is topped off by EMG's reliability and quality of workmanship. Very similar to EMG's SV, this single-coil guitar pickup differs by featuring flat Alnico V pole pieces, which provide the balanced field necessary for a more even response when using today's strings and flatter neck designs. Tonally based on early Strat designs, you'll hear that familiar peaky response. Because the EMG pickup is truly a marriage of vintage design and state-of-the-art technology with its newly designed preamp, this modern take has a much smoother tonal response whether played clean or overdriven—and with more output too! If you're looking for a guitar pickup that departs from the usual, the EMG SAV active pickup is a perfect choice.

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

The EMG SAVX active 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.

      Comments about EMG SAVX Active Single-Coil Guitar Pickup Set:

      FIRST LET ME START BY SAYING I'M A LEFTY. I HAVE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS THINGS DON'T ALWAYS GO AS PLANNED IF YOU ARE A LEFTY, SO I ALWAYS CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER TO SEE IF ANY PROBLEMS WILL ARISE.SO I CONTACTED EMG AND THEY SAID THE ONLY PROBLEM WOULD BE THE POTS WOULD WORK IN OPPSITE ROTATION. NOT A PROBLEM. I ORDERED THEM . DURING INSTALLATION IN A STRAT. I DISCOVERED THE CABLES SUPPLIED ARE TO SHORT BECAUSE IF DIFFRENT ORIENTATION. CALLED EMG SAID THEY WOULD SEND NEW ONES (STILL WAITING) SO I MADE NEW ONES. NOW IT CAME TO INSTALL THE ASSEMBLED PICKGUARD .BEING A LEFTY THE SWITCH IS IN A DIFFRENT PLACE AND BEING CABLES PLUG IN AND NOT SOLDERED THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM SO I HAD TO ROUTE THE BODY FOR CLEARENCE .NOW THE BATTERY DOESN'T SIT UNDER POTS CORRECTLY SO I HAD TO ROUTE OUT THE AREA UNDER THE BATTERY SO THE POTS HAD CLEARENCE TO PUT THE PICKGUARD ON. NOW I COULD FINALLY PLAY .BY THE WAY THE POTS ROTATE CORRECTLY. ALL I CAN SAY IS WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT AFTER ALL THAT WORK AND THEY ARE NO DIFFRENT THEN THE DIMARZIO'S I TOOK OUT.ALL THAT MONEY AND TIME WHAT A WASTE.
      I SURE THINGS FIT BETTER IF YOUR A RIGHTY. BUT IF YOU'RE A LEFTY RUN DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THIS SET.

        Comments about EMG SAVX Active Single-Coil Guitar Pickup Set:

        I have a single EMG SAVX and it is mounted in the neck position of my Charvel Wild Card Pro Mod #6 along with an EMG 85 in the bridge. I could not be happier. I went with the SAVX because of my experience with the HA and HAX that I have in an Ibanez semi-hollow. Both excellent pickups, and needing a single coil, I took the leap that the SAVX would be as good... and it is.

        I love running direct cleans ala Alex Lifeson PRESTO/HOLD YOUR FIRE/A SHOW OF HANDS and this pickup gives me punch, clarity and attack but lots of body as well. Just excellent.

        I'm waiting on the SAV to arrive to try that out as well (possibly in conjunction with an 81). I haven't met an EMG I didn't like!
