Bridges the gap between active and passive tone.
The EMG 60AX guitar pickup packs plenty of output with a balance of tones that is classically thick with smooth mids, big lows, and responsive highs. This model features close-aperture coils loaded with alnico magnets instead of the ceramic of EMG's regular 60s, giving it a warmer, thicker sound and a full-treble response to provide some serious meat to your playing. It's traditionally used in the rhythm position for everything from clean, bluesy tones to hard-rocking crunchiness. These X-series EMG pickups provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG pickups are renowned for. X-series guitar pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
The EMG 60AX humbucker 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.
