EMG SA/SA/85-Set Pickup System
EMG started their production in 1976 and since then has gained a reputation as the most popular manufacturer of active pickups for electric guitars. As a result of this their pickups are standard equipment on many high-end models from manufacturers such as ESP, Schecter and Jackson. EMG active pickups tend to have much higher output than passive pickups of similar design because of the on-board preamp. This has made them popular with hard rock and heavy metal guitarists because they overdrive the input stage of guitar amplifiers more dramatically than lower output passive pick-ups.
EMG has also launched a line of passive pick-ups (EMG HZ) in which they make use of their many years of experience in manufacturing active pick-ups.
EMG pick-ups are used by Tom Morello, David Gilmour, Steve Lukather, Prince, Metallica, Slayer, Zakk Wylde, Dave Kushner, Children of Bodom, Deftones, Judas Priest, Rammstein, Killswitch Engage, Slipknot and many more…
Back in the early 80's the idea to add a humbucking pickup to a Stratocaster* caught fire. In response to that demand we released two pre-wired combination systems, the SA/SA/81 and the SA/SA/85. Since then we've added just about every conceivable combination you can think of, and they're all available factory pre-wired. Once you've decided on the system you want, it can either be fully or partially assembled depending on how your guitar is setup. Since all EMG's use the Quik-Connect system you can change your system at any time without any soldering.To get even more out of your guitar why not replace the tone control(s) you never use with something that can really change the tone of your instrument? It's easy to add any one of the EMG Accessory circuits like the EMG-SPC, RPC, or the EXG to an EMG Combination System. You can boost the Mid-Range with the SPC, use the RPC as an active treble boost, or add presence with the EXG. By mixing two of the accessory circuits your instrument can be highly individual and unique. The Combination Systems and Options are just the beginning. You can choose a complete system wired onto a pickguard of your choice by going with any of the Pro-Series Custom (PSC) Systems. No matter how you want or need it, we can put it in your hands.
