Overview

Inside the EMG-89R pickup are both single and dual-coil pickups, each with its own output. The single-coil mode is an Alnico-loaded stacked EMG-SA. The dual-coil mode consists of two Alnico-loaded coils opposite one another, creating a guitar pickup similar to the EMG-85. A push/pull volume or tone enables you to switch from the clarity of a single-coil to the fatness of a humbucking. Virtually noiseless in both modes. The EMG-89 pickup's separate outputs give you option to utilize EMG tone enhancing accessory circuits on either pickup output.

For the sweet single coil tone in the neck, use the EMG-89R pickup, which simply is the EMG-89 placed 180 degrees in the cover cap housing. The most requested combo system is the EMG-89/EMG-SA/EMG-89R. This gives you the best of both worlds, offering the most versatility possible in a HSH setup.

    Comments about EMG-89R Split Coil Humbucking Active Guitar Pickup:

    ive had these pickups in both neck and bridge possitions on my ibanez rg570. they sound great for anything from ozzy, acdc, all the way to pink floyd and eric clapton. if you like the sound of active pickups and you want to have a versitile guitar then try these out. you wont be sorry
