Since 1976, EMG guitar pickups have been favored by countless professional guitarists. In fact, EMG's impressive line of active guitar pickups are extremely popular in the metal world. They've even collaborated with many big names to create signature guitar pickups, including James Hetfield of Metallica and Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society. Whether you prefer the sound and feel of a 6-string guitar or the extra versatility provided by a 7- or 8-string axe, you'll find out in this catalog that EMG specializes in guitar pickups for every budget and taste.
Although EMG offers a wide range of passive guitar pickups in both single-coil and humbucker styles, the company is known best for their active pickups. For those of you who are unfamiliar with active pickups, they contain onboard battery-powered preamps. These preamps give you more control over your signal, EQ and filters, and this is why active pickups are so popular among metal guitarists. A few of EMG's top-selling active pickups include the EMG-T Single-Coil Telecaster Active Pickup Set, the EMG-85 Humbucking Active Guitar Pickup and the ZW Zakk Wylde 81/85 Humbucker Set.
Of course, EMG is a master designer of passive pickups as well. The OC1 SRO Open-Coil Passive Humbucker Pickup comes in your choice of neck and bridge models and is perfect for rock, blues, country and metal styles. Or how about the H3 Passive Humbucker: this pickup has amazing noise rejection capabilities and uses a traditional solid cover cap in a unique HZ design. For headbangers who want a high output and prefer driving tones that are similar to Slayer's or Lamb of God's, the H3 is just what you're looking for.
And acoustic guitarists also have killer pickup models to check out here, including the Saddle Pickup System and the ACS Acoustic Guitar Pickup. Many of the pre-wired pickguards offered by EMG were also created in partnership with icons like Steve Lukather and David Gilmour. To put it simply, customizing your axe of choice with EMG guitar pickups would be a massive upgrade to your tone and your options here are seemingly endless.
