    02/12/14

  • Suhr Doug Aldrich Set

    Suhr Doug Aldrich Set - "I like em"

    01/15/12

    The story goes something like this. The best shredder in my arsenal, an RG550 from 1993, used to be outfitted with a set of EMG's. I played it for years. I played the devil out of it. Finally one day one of my pickups went out. I knew it would h…

    Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker SH-4 and SH-2 Set - "Vintage look and all around tone"

    11/20/11

    This is the Seymour Duncan SH-4 Zebra pickup. I think its cool that they put out their popular pickups with different colored bobbins so you can get a different look for your guitar. The Zebra bobbins on this pickup give it a real 70s look and they l…

    This is James Hetfields current pickup setup. For decades now Hetfield has stuck with EMG pickups and a particular set. He calls his new signature set the Het Set. Along with the Zakk Wylde 81/85 EMG pickup set there is another setup with the 81/60 …

  • EMG ZW Set

    07/29/11

    They could call this set the “All purpose EMG set.” When you get a guitar with EMG pickups the odds are good that it will have this set of pickups in it. This set contains the EMG 81 and 85 pickups. Both of these pickups can be used in the neck or br…
