Comments about EMG SA-X Active Single-Coil Pickup:
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.
