EMG introduces its new JH Signature pickup set, designed in collaboration with Metallica leader James Hetfield.
Featuring black nickel plated caps and EMG’s Solderless Installation System components, the JH Set consists of the JH-N (neck) and the JH-B (bridge).
"Both pickups were patterned after the pickups James has used for 30 years, but the end result was a completely different animal," the company says. The JH-N has individual ceramic poles and bobbins that feature a larger core and are taller than the 60. This is designed to produce more attack, higher output, and fuller low end in the neck position, according to EMG. The JH-B uses the same type of core but has steel pole pieces, unlike the 81 that uses bar magnets. According to the company, this is designed to produce the familiar tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner low end.
