EMG SA Set Active Alnico Strat Pickup Set Black
Special Order

Take Your Classic Strat Tone Up a Notch

EMG's EMG SA Set offers up three single-coil pickups for signature "early Strat" flavor, with a special twist. That's because EMG designed the EMG SA Set's three active Alnico bar pickups to beef up your midrange response and deliver higher output, so you can get more "bell-like" harmonics and tons of sustain - while still keeping that familiar high-end. The EMG SA Set is a favorite of David Gilmour and Steve Lukather, for good reason: greater versatility. You also get essential accessories with the EMG SA Set.

EMG SA Set Features:
  • Color: Black
  • Features three active EMG SA single-coil pickups
  • Includes 3 Quick-Connect Cables and screws and springs
  • Includes pre-wired control set with volume control, 2 tone controls, 5-way selection switch, output jack, and battery clip
The EMG SA Set gives your Strat classic tones - with a boosted midrange and increased sustain!

In "The 1980's", I used EMG Telecaster pickups & they were SUPER NICE. I recently built a "David Gilmour" type Strat. I knew I needed EMG SA Pickups in my guitar. I was alittle intimidated by the installation of these pickups. I had them done by a professional. I love single coil pickups EXCEPT they're too darn noisey. These pick ups are dead quiet. Also these are powerful pickups because they're active. They're louder than normal & the tones are splendid. I also added a EMG SPC Tone Control.....WOW.....SUPER PRONOUNCED midrange. Gotta say this in regards to guitar tone, it's ALL ABOUT the midrange & EMG SA's w/ SPCTone Control brings it.....BIGTIME ! HUGE Strat tones that are dead quiet...WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE ??
