    EMG S - nickname009's review

    01/30/12

    I'm not sure why I didn't review this pickup earlier, I've had it in a lot of used guitars I've previously owned without consciously knowing it was the S pickup that was actually in the guitar! I can remember this pickup specifically in the neck posi…

    EMG S - "great great great"

    01/29/12

    A little background. I have used one of these in the middle position of an Ibanez rg550 along with 2 EMG 81's for about 6 years now. That alone should attest to the staying quality of this pickup. I must say up front. I have never had any issues …

    EMG SA - "EMG's fattest single coil."

    07/16/11

    EMG is the market leader when it comes to active pickups. They also sell their models in the size of single coils too for people who have really long signal chains or just want the huge output and tone of an active pickup in the size of a single coil…

    04/12/11

    The EMG SX is one of the pickups that is part of the newly revised EMG X series. The X series features a brand new, revised preamp to help combat some of the issues people had with active pickups. Outside, the pickup looks the same, but the new pre…

    EMG SA - "Thick and fat single"

    04/05/11

    The EMG SA is very similar to being a single coil sized version of the EMG 85. This is the Alnico magnet version of the pickup, and it’s an active pickup which means it runs off of a power source – in this case, it’s a 9V battery. The EMG SA is a…

    EMG S - "Bright and powerful single"

    04/05/11

    The EMG S is very similar to being a single coil sized version of the EMG 81. This is the original ceramic magnet version of the pickup, and it’s an active pickup which means it runs off of a power source – in this case, it’s a 9V battery. The EM…
