Overview

The EMG-SA pickup combines the attributes of the early Strat 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 guitar pickup. These characteristics provide greater versatility than what is normally found in single-coil pickups. Favorites of Steve Lukather and David Gilmour just to name two, the EMG-SA is EMG's most popular guitar pickup for Stratocaster type guitars.

Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired split shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.

Love them

By Manny

from Enfield, CT

Comments about EMG-SA Alnico Single Coil Active Pickup:

I've bought one of EMG SA (just to see if I would like it) and installed them on a Squire. Man, what a difference! Nice midrange and gain; kind of what I was looking for. Instructions for the installation were easy and you could also get them on the EMG website if you wind up losing them. Since I do not like clipping the battery on the inside of the pickguard, I bought a battery compartment case and installed it on the back of the guitar for easy installation/removal.(of course I had to route the hole in the back to perform this. if you don't know how to do this, let a luthier handle this!) I liked this alot that I wound up buying another set.

Good Neck Pickup

By Jeffrey Swanson

from Denver, CO

Comments about EMG-SA Alnico Single Coil Active Pickup:

This pickup is wonderful sounding, it has a perfect output, a great eq balance, almost zero background noise, and really emphasized picking technique, which is what I was really looking for. The one drawback to this pickup is that it is a tad bit deeper than EMG humbuckers, I installed it on a neckthrough guitar, and thankfully enough the pickup is JUST low enough, but if I had to lower the pickup any more I would not be able to do it because the bottom of the pickup runs smack into the neck of the guitar.
