EMG SA/SA/85 pickup set, White
Back in the early 80's the idea to add a humbucking pickup to a Strat caught fire. Since then we've added just about every conceivable combination you can think of, and they're all available factory pre-wired. Once you've decided on the system you want, it can either be fully or partially assembled depending on how your guitar is setup. Since all EMG's use the Quik-Connect system you can change your system at any time without any soldering.
The 85 is one of our first pickups and is the slightly more sophisticated and well rounded half of its famous twin, the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. Most often used in the rhythm position, the alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones to enable you to play the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. Try it in the bridge position for exceptional smoothness and soul. This pickup pairs well with just about every other humbucker in our line. Give it a try and experience why itﾒs been a top seller for so many years.
