If you love the sound of a bright and clear single-coil pickup, but hate the hum, then we have what you’ve been searching for. Unlike most single coil pickups, EMG's internal shielding and a low impedance preamp makes these pickups virtually noiseless while maintaining an authentic single coil sound. The ceramic bar magnets provides a balanced and bright guitar tone, while the added X preamp gives players increased headroom and amazing touch sensitivity. The SX Set has plenty of output to give your sound top end sizzle while maintaining solid lows with articulation and presence. Whether you are playing jazz, country, metal or blues, the versatility is undeniable. With EMG's solderless wiring, you can install our pickups easily at home.
