Used on David's main red Strat.

David has used this same EMG system for many years on his main red Strat. The DG20 pickup comes with 3 ivory SA single-coil pickups, wired with an EXG guitar expander, an SPC presence control, and master volume — all on a deluxe white pearl pickguard, ivory pickups, and white knobs. The SA single-coil pickups feature Alnico magnets which give a full round tone with an accentuated mid range. The EMG-EXG guitar expander circuit increases the bass and treble while reducing the mids, perfect for chord definition at higher volumes, while the SPC makes the SAs sing by boosting the mids and turning your single coils into full blown humbucking!

Now you can have the same guitar pickups and tone accessories as David, but keep practicing if you want to get to the "Dark Side of the Moon."

EMG-EXG
For flexibility in tone at your fingertips, there is no better choice than the EXG guitar expander. The frequency response of the EXG is similar to normal guitar amp equalization. The lows and highs are boosted while the midrange is dipped out. The EXG is great for creating a fuller tone that doesn't get muddy, while keeping it clean and clear, letting your guitar stand out in the mix.

EMG EMG-DG20 David Gilmour Pre-Wired Pickguard/Pickup Set Features:

  • Complete and ready to mount to your guitar
    Includes output jack and battery clip set for the EMG-EXG

  • EMG EMG-DG20 David Gilmour Pre-Wired Pickguard/Pickup Set

    As reviewed by stratplayer on 2/26/2009

    I was very skeptical about changing the stock vintage pickups and the sound of my 1987 Fender USA Standard Strat. The Guitar Center employee was very helpful as I struggled with the decision in the store. I am very pleased to report that this upgrade far exceeds my expectations. The installation was straightforward and very simple. I have no complaints but I really don?t understand why such a very well engineered and designed upgrade would not have a predetermined accommodation clip or secure placement for the battery. In any case, this set of pickups is just perfect for my style of playing and sound choices. I could not be happier with this product. I offer that it would not be the first choice for most metal or crunch players. However, if you are a player that is looking to expand the color pallet of a standard Stratocaster...look no further. I also have a 1989 Clapton Strat but these EMG pickups allow more character and tone to shine through. I highly recommend this setup.

  • Look before you leap.

    As reviewed by Bob on 1/4/2011

    I replaced the stock pickups in my 2000 American Stratocaster with this set, and there are a few things that you must be aware of before you jump in. There are effectively no tone controls on the guitar anymore. The first tone control now raises both the low and high end of the response curve as you bring up the pot. This sounds wonderful on lower volume settings, but the bottom hits very hard and without the right amp I can see how you could easily get into trouble with a loose sounding bottom at louder volumes. The second tone control now boosts the mid range and can really help put a signature sound on your solos, pedal free. With an AC 30 on the boil the guitar sounds fantastic, very powerful and in control, far more than any Strat I have ever heard in front of me. I have heard it said that guitars with this setup installed no longer sound like a Strat, but forget that; its simply not true. By the way, these pickups are as quiet as you could hope for, just be careful to isolate the ground wires as the instructions tell you. They are amazing, just be ready for the old feel and response of your Strat to be changed. I assure you that you will feel the change is for the better after just a few sessions with the guitar. I will never go back.

  • P.U.L.S.E sound. nuff said.

    As reviewed by Mark Cogswell on 6/9/2011

    This pickup set is so good, David Gilmore put his name on it. hmm, So why not buy them? Exactly. The Dg20 set will make your guitar come alive and plugged into the right effects and amp will give you goose bumps that will last until your done with the last solo of comfortably numb. Happens to me every time I play it. They are very, very sensitive pickups so set them low. Their no humbuckers but they have some of the same sustain depending on the effects you use. The ExG and the SPC tone pots are bad ass, its like a EQ built in you guitar. Set the gain low on your amp so you wont have any distortion problems, let the pedals do the work. This set isnt just great for all of Gilmore sound, (Except the black strat tone, it took me about a month to find that out and you wont be happy if you want that tone) but for basically any style of music. Bell-like-warm tone of RHCP, Metal, Ska, surf, Punk, you name it. To change the battery is simple. Just unscrew the 4 pickguard screws where the tone pots are, lift up on the pickguard, slide out the battery, pop another one in. Just make sure you unplug the cable from the input jack when your done playing cause that will drain your battery. Any who, these pickups are amazingly amazing so the real question here is why haven't you bought them yet? Hope this helps.
