Overview

The EMG SA-X active single-coil pickup features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets and powered by a newly designed preamp, the EMG SA-X provides a vintage Strat single-coil sound: bright, airy, with a rich bottom end, all with virtually noiseless operation. The Alnico V bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during string bends, and makes for a playability and reliability that is unrivaled. The creamy midrange warmth and sublime blues tones are clear, strong, and expressive and allow you to reach from classic and clean, to rowdy and raunchy. Give the SA-X pickup a try and experience why the "X" factor is exciting players all around the world.

The complete replacement pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive solderless Quik-Connect system; split shaft volume/active tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.

Excellent Single Coil

By Jeffrey Swanson

from Denver, CO

I purchased this pickup for a guitar with an EMG 60X in the bridge, as well as an EMG SA for a guitar with an EMG 60 in the bridge, and I like this pickups much more than the regular SA. The SA is an awesome single coil, but this one has just tad bit more oomph to it, it has a bit less output than the SA, but everything else is that much greater because of it, pick attack and technique come through even better, with fast playing of scales, sequences and arpeggios every single note rings out clear as day and doesn't get muddy down low with high distortion on a neck humbucker, And on clean settings this baby just SINGS, I really can't get enough of it. I installed this pickup on a bolt on neck guitar, but be warned, if you have a neck through guitar, this pickup is a tad bit deeper than the standard EMG humbucker, and the neck may get in the way.
