Overview

The SAV is an overwound single coil pickup with hidden Alnico 5 pole pieces for tons of output and punchy attack.

EMG has worked with Steve Lukather for over 13 years now and the latest result is the EMG-SAV active pickup. Steve's playing style and writing have produced several Grammy's that EMG is proud to be a part of. They'll develop just about anything Steve wants (within reason) and that's just what happened when Ernie Ball was revising the "Luke" Guitar. Steve along with Dudley Gimpel from Ernie Ball figured they'd try some new things on the Luke. Dudley told EMG they were trying pickups from other makers and they had to deliver something great to stay in contention.

EMG developed the SAV and added their own special touch. The windings were increased for a meatier tone and they hid away the pole pieces for a more uniform look to the instrument (see the SL20 Pro-Series). Steve has always played a specially overwound SA pickup, so EMG used the original preamp from the SA pickup with flat Alnico 5 pole pieces hidden under the cover cap. The SA preamp gives the SAV its classic EMG sound while the flat poles put the pickup closer to the strings for more output and a punchier attack. The current EB Luke Guitar uses the model spec'd by Steve EMG calls the SLV.

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