A set of three single-coil pickups with the vintage Strat tone and look enthusiasts love plus preamp technology that professionals desire.
The EMG SAVX set of single-coil guitar pickups have the tone, clarity, responsiveness, and look that vintage enthusiasts will appreciate. All this is topped off by EMG's reliability and quality of workmanship. Very similar to EMG's SV, this single-coil guitar pickup differs by featuring flat Alnico V pole pieces, which provide the balanced field necessary for a more even response when using today's strings and flatter neck designs. Tonally based on early Strat designs, you'll hear that familiar peaky response. Because the EMG pickup is truly a marriage of vintage design and state-of-the-art technology with its newly designed preamp, this modern take has a much smoother tonal response whether played clean or overdriven—and with more output too! If you're looking for a guitar pickup that departs from the usual, the EMG SAV active pickup is a perfect choice.
The X-Series of guitar pickups provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. EMG SAVX pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
The EMG SAVX active 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.
