EMG 85X Active Alnico Humbucker Guitar Pickup Black
Special Order

A High-headroom Incarnation of a Classic!

A higher-headroom version of the legendary EMG 85, the EMG 85X is endowed with an organic, open tone, though it still gives players the clarity and response that made the EMG 85 such a hit. Powered by Alnico V magnets, the EMG 85X gives your rhythm playing a chunky growl and drives your leads into sweet saturation, giving your tone the punch you need to play anything from blues to metal. Perfect for the bridge position in any humbucker-equipped guitar, the EMG 85X matches well to virtually any active humbucker in the EMG line. Call today to find your perfect pair of EMG pickups!

EMG 85X Active Humbucking Pickup Features at a Glance:
  • Active humbucking pickup
  • Alnico V magnets
  • Best in the bridge position
  • Great for rhythms and leads
  • Pairs well with virtually any other EMG humbucker
It's the classic EMG 85 in a high-headroom version: the EMG 85X!
