EMG 60 Black

Active Pickup

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

The combination of ceramic magnets with the narrower magnetic field of the single-coil format constitute the delightful sound of the EMG 60. It is extremely sensitive to the attack of the guitarist and combines the attack of a single coil with the warm and powerful sound of a Humbucker, but with significantly more treble than you are used to from Humbuckers. Assertive yet singing lead sounds, as well as transparent chords are nor problem for the EMG 60

  • Ceramic magnets
  • Much power with a balance of fat, reinforced mids
  • Strong bass and singing treble

The active neck pickup

H M S, 06.01.2018
As a guitar player you'll allways try to find the best match between overdrive definition and a clean great tone. The EMG 60 does exactly that with a sweet and warm sound, while providing a great versatility to your instrument and to your sound. The installation is a smooth and easy one, with everything you'll need in the packaging. It's the perfect match for the EMG 81 on the bridge position, providing your guitar with a nice balance. The Thomann customer service was great and the shipping and handling were well executed and fast.

Nicest leads and cleanes cleans

24.03.2014
EMGs - either you hate them or you love them.
I personally think they are great. The 81 is perfect for anything with al lot of gain in the bridge position, where i find the 60 is the one you want put in your neck postion.
Though many people prefer the 85 in the neck for shredding solos, the 60 is perfect for the really smooth, singing leads. Although you can shred with them just as nice, if you ask me.
But the one thing that really stands out for me with this pickup is the clean tone.
It has a very bright, shiny, natural tone, almost a bit like an acoustic guitar.
If you are into clean arpeggios with some chorus and delay, with the EMG 60 you'll find yourself in 80s metal intros instantaniously.
The quick-connect system is a nice thing, too. Although I am not reluctant to soldering at all, it is really the easiest and fastest way to wire up a guitar.
The downside is that you must use all the cables with the length they come with, which can lead to a bit crammed up rear cavity. That is especially annoying when you are retrofitting EMGs in a guitar that has no extra space for the battery.
But in this very case you can always cut the cables to the needed length and go back to soldering again. The little circuit board provides extra soldering points for that (or if you want to combine it with an older EMG that hasn't got quick-connect).
Seems they thought of everything at this one...
