The EMG-GC21 SA pickup and pickguard set combines the attributes of the early Stratocasters sound but with an added midrange response and higher output, giving it "bell-like" ringing harmonics and increased sustain. One single Alnico bar magnet delivers classic overdrive with a smooth midrange distortion, while still retaining the familiar high-end of a single-coil pickup. These characteristics provide greater versatility than what is normally found in single-coil guitar pickups. Favorites of Steve Lukather and David Gilmour just to name two, the EMG-GC21 SA Set comes with volume and tone controls, and a five-position switch which is all ready to mount onto your pickguard.

Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cables (3), prewired control set including volume, 2 tone controls, 5-way selection switch (black & white knobs), output jack, and battery clip, screws & springs.

  • as expected, perfect.

    As reviewed by matt on 1/6/2011

    I live in Austin and used to do the live music scene, now more of a hobbyist, I wanted to fix up my scratchy-potted, bad-switch setup with a fail-safe option. This is it. When first plugged in, turned up to "3" was too loud, based on past pickups. The new harmonic possibilities are mind-boggling. Installed on a MIM std body perfectly, except: 1. fitting the battery under the pots was a little tight, and 2. mine happened to have the middle and neck tone connectors hooked up backwards. No biggie, I just switched 'em out. Slightly upgraded since the pictures, it has simple 'computer motherboard' type connectors, very easy, very pleased.

  • Well Worth the Money

    As reviewed by Mark on 12/30/2009

    If you need to salvage a low-end, no-name, Strat-style, this really does the trick. You know the kind, the ones that come in the packages for beginners - mine is a Stagg. All the visible parts of the guitar were actually pretty decent. It just sounded something awful because of the very low-end electronics. Not wanting to spend a bloody fortune on a name-brand and taking the advise of the GC email tech guy, I decided to give this a shot. Fortunately, the pickguard covered the area of the old pickguard and fit the fretboard and bridge perfectly. The electronics needed to be persuaded into place by using a Dremel to route out more area for the lower tone control pot and the selector switch. Once that was complete it fit right in place and with a few new holes drilled for the pickguard mounting screws, the conversion was made. I put on new strings, adjusted up the pickups and tried it out. It sounds wonderful even when compared to my son's Gibson. Exactly as the product description claims. For the amount of money that I have in this guitar, I am extremely satisified and heartily recommend the purchase of this product.
