An active 7-string humbucker that's ideal for rhythm guitar in genres from blues to hard rock.
The EMG 60-7X 7-string active guitar pickup packs plenty of output with both clarity and a distinctive crunch. It has these characteristics because of close-aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any of EMG's 7-string humbucking models. This 7-string guitar pickup is most often used for rhythm guitar as its tonal characteristics enable it to achieve everything from nice, clean bluesy tones to hard-rocking crunchiness. Pair the 60-7X with EMG's 81-7 pickup and you have yourself a versatile creation that will make your guitar sing.
The 60-7X and other EMG pickups from the X-Series provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG 60-7X guitar pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
The EMG 60-7X 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.
