Quality pickup - interesting tone
Richard708, 07.09.2014
Firstly my pickup has the classic white EMG logo (looks like an S or SA) and doesn't say HZ which will please some as it removes a bit of the 'budget' perception of the passive range.

This is a nice pickup with quite a unique tone which I'm using in neck position - think single coil bite/shimmer with thicker smoother bass and low mids with not much upper mid. Gives that typical 'hi fi' sound EMGs are known for. It is also mega quiet! Much quieter than the conventional humbucker I have in the bridge position.

After an initial trial, I considered changing it for a lace sensor but it's staying in at the moment as it is pleasing whenever I play it. It also fits in tight spaces (mine is in a top mounted carvin where very few singles will fit) but is quite tall so unlikely to be able to mount it very low - eg I couldn't use in middle position as it would interfere with picking too much.
