Black hardware includes Sperzel locking tuners, Schaller straplocks and EMG JH pickups. Includes hardshell case.
EMG James Hetfield signature pickups
The JH James Hetfield Humbucker Set is a totally new dimension for EMG, the design being driven solely with the input of James Hetfield. After playing the 81/60 EMG combo for many years now James wanted something not only "new" sounding, he wanted a set that also looked totally new.
The neck pickup uses individual ceramic poles and bobbins with an enlarged core that gives it a more percussive attack, higher output and a fuller low-end response making it clean & fat and fast attacking.
The bridge pickup uses the same larger/taller core coil but has steel pole pieces, again for a tighter more percussive attack with less mutual inductance for a cleaner low-end. Based of the EMG 81 but brought to a whole new level.
