OVERVIEW

Single-coil brilliance and incredible response.

The EMG-S active guitar pickup features a single ceramic magnet. It has the equivalent output of other single coil pickups but the EMG-S features a brighter tone quality accentuated in the upper middle to high frequency response (similar to later model Strat pickups). By using the EMG Tone Modeling technique, the EMG-S has a "sparkle" with added definition for depth and increased sensitivity. Country artists such as Vince Gill prefer the EMG-S because it can translate a player's technique faithfully.

Package Includes: 3 EMG-S Ceramic Single-coil active pickups, EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired split shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.

Comments about EMG-S Ceramic Single Coil Active Pickup Set:

I own a 1984 Ibanez Roadstar II guitar with a three-pickup Strat configuration but with one volume and one tone only and I wanted to upgrade the sound so I was checking out EMG's. The popular set was the SA but I wanted to try the S model cause it has higher frequency and I read that Kirk Hammett of Metallica uses them. But when I played them on my Ibanez through a Marshall JCM 2000 amp it sounded like crap! I mean it's a freakin' Marshall, for God's sake. I still hear the hum through the amp and they still have that single soil sound. Why does it even bother needing a 9 volt battery? I regret removing the Dimarzio Fast Tracks on the guitar I had on before.
