During the "Retro" trend in the early 90's, We decided to develop EMG's first "vintage" style pickup, the EMG-SV. Using the same original string interface (staggered Alnico 5 pole pieces), the SV is tone modeled after the 1959 Strat with that familiar peaky response at around 3000 Hz giving it that "plucky" percussive attack. Because it's truly a marriage of vintage design and state of the art electronics, it has a much smoother, less scratchy distortion sound, and more output. If you're looking for a pickup that departs from the usual stop, but takes a different route, the EMG-SV is a perfect choice.
