EMG 89 Active Alnico Coil Splitting Humbucker Guitar Pickup Black
Special Order

Both Single-coil and Humbucker Tones from This Stacked EMG!

EMG's 89 split-coil active pickup pulls double-duty as both a single and dual-coil pickup, each with its own output. On the single-coil side, it's an Alnico loaded stacked EMG SA. And in dual-coil mode, it consists of two Alnico-loaded coils that create a pickup sound similar to EMG's popular EMG 85 humbucker. Using the push/pull volume or tone knob enables you to switch between the EMG 89's single-coil and humbucking sounds. Included are EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable and a prewired push/pull volume/tone control set with the EMG 89.

EMG 89 Split-coil Active Pickup Features:
  • Color: Black
  • Single-coil mode features an Alnico-loaded stacked EMG SA
  • Dual-coil mode responds much like the EMG 85
  • Includes a Quik-Connect cable, a pre-wired push/pull volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, and screws and springs
Give yourself a ton of tonal range with the split-coil EMG 89!

EMG, the best pickups ever.

I have the 89 in my custom V guitar and it works great. I also use the 81s & the 85s in all my other guitars. It would be good If you add a bigger selection of colors.
