Customizing your guitar with a new set of pickups is a fun and rewarding way to create a tone that's all your own - but hey, not every musician likes to tinker around with their instrument's nuts, bolts and wires. Thankfully, EMG has just the answer for those guitarists: prewired pickguards! Containing the solderless pots, pre-loaded pickups and pickguard, EMG prewired pickguards are a quick, easy and affordable way to upgrade your axe. With no wires to combine, prewired pickguards remove all the complication that comes along with replacing pickups.
From red pickguards with prewired single-coil pickups to dual humbucker options and even signature prewired sets from famous artists, EMG offers it all in these pages. In fact, many of these prewired pickguards are huge sellers - take for instance, the EMG-GC21 SAG Prewired Pickguard Set.
