Offers increased headroom with an organic and open tone while maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for.
The EMG S-X active single-coil pickup features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets and powered by a newly designed preamp, the EMG S=X provides a vintage Strat single-coil sound: bright, airy, with a rich bottom end, all with virtually noiseless operation. The Alnico V bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during string bends, and makes for a playability and reliability that is unrivaled. The creamy mid-range warmth and sublime blues tones are clear, strong, and expressive and allow you to reach from classic and clean, to rowdy and raunchy. Give the S=X pickup a try and experience why the "X" factor is exciting players all around the world.
The complete replacement pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive solderless Quik-Connect system; split shaft volume/active tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.
