EMG 89 Black

Pickup for Electric Guitars

Active pickups in electric guitars split the field: But even sceptics have to admit one thing: The EMG pickups sound fantastic and without wild noise. The long list of prominent users (including David Gilmour, Steve Lukather and Metallica's Kirk Hammett) speaks for itself!

The EMG 89 actually has two pickups inside. With a simple switch you can choose between the humbucker sound of the '85 model (the legendary PAF inspired, Alnico magnets, warm and singing) and the brilliant single-coil sound of EMG SA. For guitarists who want to have both worlds in a single guitar, this might be a solution void of compromise.

  • Humbucker dual mode pickup
  • Humbucker (Modell 85) and single coil (Modell SA) in one case
  • Alnico magnets
  • 2 Separate outputs
  • With push-pull volume pot
  • Coppery EMG Logo
  • Colour: Black

I love these pickups

Anthony3107, 30.01.2014
I initially fitted a pair of these to an Epiphone Les Paul, they are stunning - EMG-style HB tones that are just what you need for rock, and also able to switch to ultra-clean strat tones that are real fun from an LP - genuine bright, crystal clear single-coil sounds, not like the split coil sounds usually offered with humbuckers - even the best of those come nowhere near to this.

I then fitted them to a lap steel, and with the SA setting they are excellent when you play with fingers. I have since bought another set used, which I will fit in something soon I hope

A versatile monster!!

Russell T., 27.05.2013
The Emg 89 is sooooo versatile as it gives you the best of both worlds- full on active humbucking power AND crystal clear single coil chime with no noise. It will turn any guitar into an all rounder, from metal to chicken pickin at the flick of a switch. As an all round player I need my guitars ready for all styles, the 89 gives me this. And just in case anyone is wondering about volume difference between modes, it is very small and actually helps for quiet moments with out the need for standing on pedals. I luv it . Highly recommended!!
