Good product

Pierre481, 23.05.2011
I already had its predecessor, the EMG 89 and wanted to test the new series X.
The main change between the two versions is, in my opinion, in the undeniable addition of personality that EMG brought to the X series, the sound is much more precise and typed, clearer, better defined, less "rough" than the EMG Traditional; Nevertheless, we find the sounds of the previous series that have made the reputation of the brand.

The new seamless electronic kit has the double advantage of facilitating assembly, but also of bringing a certain modularity in the configuration of your instrument.

Wanted to buy me a new guitar

Tobias E. 442, 15.01.2013
I was actually always telecaster fan!
But the telecasters which me good in the hand lay and I geil from the sound found my then azubi savings of 700EUR (2005) with ~ 1500EUR therefore it became a "metal gitare" the ltd m 400 (600EUR). Which gave me something of cool in the hand and despite Emg 81 (+ 18v mod) a good sound in comparison to my then guitar. Funk rock indipendent rock 60% clean I play.

Because I had saved almost 1000EUR for ne tele and in the load to try out I came across the splitable dinger of emg with the x series (at the lp of the charge owner). According to advertising it is open sound (wider and not so "artificial" tight as without x) and it is so!

I have EMG 89-X BK in the brige and EMG 89-XR BK in the neck sit and by the singlecoil splittung is the guitar so versatile became ideal for me as funck rock band member and I think for all coverbang guitars are the super suited.
I wonder why you do not nowadays in more guitars. Clean is simply overwhelming (but only after adjustment to the sides)

What bothers me are however the volume regulator and tone regulators the might be softer tuned but they function! Cables and instructions are super. If you were afraid that the plug off the rumspringen on the stage gibs also heiskleber for the solderless plug). I have used for the installation about 1.5 hours. As a funker with scar share I now get the out of phase switch and then I am overjoyed.

I once read the in the 85 x the sa and not the sax singlecoil drinne is but the sound is really great

For 260 ne ultimate guitar! Soh go play now :-)
