Overview

The EMG 707X pickup has been leading the pack of EMG's 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001, and is now available in an 8-string version! Before this EMG pickup model was introduced, existing 8-string guitar pickups sounded muddy and dull on the low B string, especially when trying to hit artificial and natural harmonics, but the EMG 808X pickup eliminates those problems. Featuring Alnico V, loaded, wide-aperture coils, EMG was able to beef up that low B tone and at the same time provide a more responsive and super-tight overall sound. Whether you are ringing out Opeth-style jazzy chords or playing palm-muted death chugs, even with the amp set to "kill" these guitar pickups will articulate every note harmonically and squeal whatever you ask of them. Used equally in bridge and neck positions, the EMG 808X guitar pickups will forever change how you hear and play your 8-string guitar.

The EMG 808X and other guitar pickups from the X-Series provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG 808X pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.

The EMG 808X 8-string 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.

EMG Has done it again

By Matthew SMILEY

from Springfield Mo

Comments about EMG 808X 8-String Active Guitar Pickup:

These pickups are worth the money. They sound amazing clean and they sound equally as good with heavy distortion. The F# is alot more distinct and not muddy at all. I actually tune my eight string down to E and I get amazing clarity from these pickups. If you are thinking about buying these you wont be dissapointed these pickups have actually exceeded my expectations.

X = Fantastic

By Nick

Comments about EMG 808X 8-String Active Guitar Pickup:

Beutiful sound... That's all I really need to say. If you have EMG's in a guitar or are looking for a different active pickup look at these. They are cleaner and crisper. The cleans are much better and they are much less "sterile". If you have an 8 string and want that F# to really ring out check these out!
