We've worked with Steve Lukather of Toto for several years now and the latest result is the EMG-SAV. We developed the SAV for Steve's "Luke" Guitar made by Ernie Ball, but for Steve we added our special touch. The windings were increased for a meatier tone, we hid away the pole pieces for a more uniform look to the instrument, and we used the original preamp from the SA pickup with flat Alnico 5 pole pieces hidden under the cover cap. Still with EMG's classic sound, the flat poles put the pickup closer to the strings for more output and a punchier attack.
