EMG SL-20 Steve Lukather 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…
This EMG SL20 Steve Lukather System is equipped with an SLV/SLV/85 pickup mix wired up with a single master volume and tone. Clean and simple. The SLV is a custom pickup designed for Steve and is available only in this "Pro Series" System, or if you buy an Ernie Ball "Luke".
The SLV is an over-wound version of our new SAV Pickup and features hidden pole pieces. The over-winding creates an even fatter tone to match up with the EMG-85 Humbucking. The SL20 also features the EMG-85 Humbucking that Steve had a hand in developing. The SL20 system is mounted on a Black Pearl pickguard with black knobs. Installing the SL20 in your instrument won't guarantee you a Grammy award, but it's a great way to get started.
