EMG DG20 David Gilmour
I had this type of plate that I mounted on a standard Strat Mexican I had at the time, it is true that the sensation of sound is very different and more specific, the setting and the association of knobs is not obvious immediately, but it just fast enough.
it is very advisable in my opinion to use this type of microphone with clear sound or see a slight light + overdrive Blues genre beyond .... it's not very nice for the ears and the fluidity of what we play ....
but if you have the opportunity, there is a site online in USA that offers Gilmour Set with famous legendary microphones, plate and wiring for less than 400 Euro, you have a chance to escape 2 Customs and the 30% tax ... there are tricks, but you look .... and if you do the deal, for the reality of sound microphones, consider changing a little later than body of your Strat with a total and complete shielding for micro cavity and choose carefully the type of wood of the table ...
Musically your ....

I use these pickups recently. I have installed a Fender Highway one TARS instead of Tex Mex pickups. I also have a G & L tribute S500 sounding thunder to compare.

For starters, the kit is very easy to install. For my part, I'm a little annoyed because I put microphones on the old aluminum plate I had. Otherwise everything is easy, just plug are small pin very well finished and let's go is screwed back.

What I like about these pickups is that they are extremely accurate, all the nuances of the game out very well.

They are also very versatile with atypical knobs that allow various combinations of sounds. We quickly find what slamming Gilmour on some tracks.

Distortion is in mortal means well feature microphones and especially NO BUZZ or hum! It's magic for a strat!

The knobs are nice enough fiddling, you may even find his electro acoustic removing all medium and boustant treble / bass. The races of those is very accurate and scalable.

The criticism that I have to do the microphones is that we lose this spirit fortification, a little heat but this is offset by the sound quality, power and silence microphones are lost. It is a matter of taste and above all they are much more versatile than vintage pickups. Again, it all depends on what you seek.

My strat is totally changed, I'm super satisfied!

In summary:

+ Modern sounds
+ The gilmour
+ No unwanted noise
+ Versatility due to knobs
+ Huge output level
+ Precision
+ Easy installation

- Lack heat vintage microphones
- Very precise Pickups must play clean (the modern game)

How long you use it?

I bought the plate EMG DG20 few days ago, my team is Fender Stratocaster Vintage 62 'reissue. I found the pickups origins of my guitar great but a bit too "dry" and "slap" for my taste!

DG20 kit is super easy to install, tinker a guitar to 1800 € scared me, but ultimately it's really simple, just take your time! And no need to solder, has everything to do not see need

As many have suggested I put up the drumkit in the vibrato instead of the central spring!

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

I have tried a lot of Strat 'with different mics, which are the only concurrency, and it is only my personal opinion, what are the Gold Lace Sensor. I have the advantage of having a friend who has exactly the same guitar as me, which made it possible to compare the two guitars on the same amp, one after another, and I must say that the EMG are quickly pass the Vintage 57 '62' for Micro bland! (Personal opinion always)

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The most:

- Ease of assembly
- The look of the pickups (I do not like the look of the original Fender pickups)
- The sound, super versatile, halfway between vintage and modern.


- Not bad breath

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Good value for money.

I remake that choice without a doubt .... but another favorite can happen quickly!
