EMG SV-Set Pickup System
In 1993 we decided to go through a renaissance of our own when the "Retro" trend was taking place in the guitar industry. It was time to visit EMG's own "Vintage Vaultî, after all we'd been in business for 17 years. After so many years, why not stretch out, the last thing players would expect from EMG is a "Vintage" Pickup. We decided to develop the EMGSV and give it the same original string interface: staggered Alnico 5 pole pieces. But that's where the similarities end. We tone modeled the EMGSV after the 1959 Strat with that familiar peaky response at around 3000 Hz.
The EMG-SV has that "plucky" percussive attack, but has a much smoother, less scratchy distortion sound, and more output. It's truly a marriage of vintage magnetic design and state of the art electronics. We also used the SV as the vehicle to further propel EMG into a new era. The SV is the first EMG to feature a totally new preamp that breaks the noise barrier beyond -100dbV. It's so quiet it's impossible to tell the guitar is even plugged in at high gain levels. It's also the first pickup to use the Quik-Connect system that allows you to swap pickups easily. If you're looking for a pickup that departs from the usual stop, but takes a different route, the EMG-SV is a perfect choice.
