EMG DG20 David Gilmour-looking for the Pulse tone era
25.01.2017
I bought the EMG DG20 set because I owned a Strat guitar and I wasn't happy with the sound, plus I am a fan of David Gilmour sound, especially during the Pulse era.
The product works exactly as advertised, easy to install. Please note, you should buy a battery box and have everything installed by a luthier for best results, otherwise you must dismantle all whenever the battery runs flat.
Please read instructions to get the best tones, and NOTE that Tone pots are not really TONE pots, they are special EQ's that you need to understand and practice how to use them.
I owned several sets of EMG pickups along with vintage ones, and I can tell you that these ones bring great advantages, don't start biased that only vintage sounds good. Judge with your ears (and wallet :)))
PROS:
-Once installed, it took little time to get the tones I longed for: position 4(1st being bridge and 5th being neck) 1 and 3; Clean tones on all of them, drive on 1st
-SPC and EXG tone controls are awsome, please explore their range and try to get the most out of them
-Quiet pickups, the closest sound to Fenderish single-coils sound without the terrible noise that usually accompanies them
-Veeery easy to instal, good value for the money
-I got what I payed for, 2 clean tones and an overdrive one; for any other wishes, get a different guitar :)
CONS:
-Quite ugly pickboard, would have preferred a white one
-EMG Pickups without Tone controls are unusable, dull and common-sounding; don't let this fool you, experience settings with SPC and EXG controls, those are NOT regular Tone pots
-you should have been noticed that a battery box would be extremely usefull

Super beautiful
Yado, 01.07.2018
I?ve wanting to revive my 20-year old strat with these for a while and I finally did and oh boy am I glad I did!

The sound is unbelievably clean, thanks to 5 active set, and is super quiet. The installation was a bit tricky, as you have to remove the ground wire welded to the back of the bridge. You also need to place the battery properly so it won?t shake when you play. Took me less than 20 minutes to install (including cleaning the guitar!). Looks beautiful and plays even more beautiful.

I?m a huge fan of Gilmour and this gave me access to his tones. The first song I played after installing them was a Pink Floyd song. You need to experiment with the wide range of tones it gives you and you?ll love it as much as I do.

Highly recommended and worth every penny put into it.
