It's not common for a first time guitarist to choose their instrument based on the pickups installed. However, of all the critical components that make up a guitar's sound, the pickups are the most crucial. These days, there is no shortage of carefully constructed pickups suitable for a wide range of musical styles, but you can narrow your options down a lot quicker by going with a pickup that's widely praised and used amongst the world's top players. For that, EMG guitar pickups are a quintessential choice for any axe.

EMG guitar pickups have been a mainstay in the music industry since 1976. Made right here in the U.S.A., EMG is the preferred pickup choice amongst the biggest rock stars in music today. In fact, throughout EMG's impressive catalog of pickups, you'll find many endorsed options designed for various big names, including Zakk Wylde and Metallica's James Hetfield. From humbucker sets to single coils, and even prewire pickguards, EMG has it all.

For a superb acoustic soundhole pickup, the EMG-ACS has already become the pickup of choice for acoustic players. Consisting of a built-in preamp that's specifically tuned for a brilliant transient tone, this pickup works terrifically for both live performance and recording in the studio. For electric players, check out the EMG 81-7X 7-String Active guitar pickup. This high-output pickup is made especially for 7-string lead players, and produces amazing sustain for exceptional soloing.

When it comes to choosing the right pickups for your guitar, there's no winning formula. In the end, it all comes down to individual preference. But if you're not sure what the right pickup is for you, find out what your favorite artists use. Doing so will give you a better idea of what kind of pickup is needed to produce the sound you aspire to achieve... and rest assured, when you're ready to make the switch, EMG has the perfect sounding pickup waiting for you.
