EMG EMG-60 Humbucking Active Guitar Pickup

While the EMG-60 humbucker still features the close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any of EMG's many humbucking models, this pickup also packs plenty of output with both clarity and cut through high end. The EMG-60 guitar pickup is incredible for rhythm guitar as metal and extreme players have discovered. James Hetfield's signature ESP models use EMG-60s because their distinctive crunch sets any rhythm player apart in the mix of a band that pumps a lot of midrange from the stage.

With a distinctive tone for soloing, the 60 works perfectly as a clear, yet fat lead pickup. The resonance slope is steeper but the peak is higher than other EMG models. The EMG-60 pickup is the result of a lot of input from various people. It is probably the most versatile humbucking pickup EMG makes, but doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

The Most Versatile EMG!

By Oscar Garay from Kissimmee, FL on 3/19/2011 9:20:00 PM

This pickup is absolutely amazing in terms of versatility. Whether you looking for that warm bright clean sound to a classic 80s crunch tone this pickup has it! This pickup is usually paired with the 85 or 81 and provides the sparkling cleans till your hearts contend. But if you all want that vintage sound this pickup is a great replacement for any passive humbucker and adds a more plethora of sounds that can be created with you guitar! 10/5 stars! A must for any traditionalist and vintage player!
