If you love the sound of single-coils but hate the hum, here's what you've been searching for. This set of three EMG SX active guitar pickups provides increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG pickups are renowned for. Featuring close-aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets and powered by a newly designed preamp, the tone of the EMG SX single-coil pickup is hot enough to drive an amp with plenty of top-end sizzle, plus it gives solid lows and mids that ooze presence to make your solos sing. With internal shielding and the low-impedance preamp, the EMG SX pickup gets virtually noiseless operation at a higher output level so that all the tone makes it to your amp. Additionally, the ceramic bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during string bends and makes for unrivaled playability and reliability. Give this EMG guitar pickup a try and experience why the "X" factor is exciting players around the world.

The EMG SX 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.

Three hum-cancelling single-coils with a preamp hot enough to drive an amp with lots of top-end sizzle.

  • 3 active single-coil pickups
  • Hum-canceling
  • Close-aperture coils
  • Ceramic magnets
  • Newly-designed, low impedance preamp

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

    Replace the Fender Fat '50s with the EMG and no more hum and noise when performing. Great single coil tone without the compromise.
