The SAVX Set has all the tone, clarity, and responsiveness guitar players demand in a single coil pickup with a vintage look enthusiasts will love. With its flat Alnico V pole pieces, the SAVX Set is designed for newer instruments with a flatter fretboard radius. The tone is modeled after the early Strat pickups, giving players that familiar "quack," punch, and bell like tone. With the X series preamp, these pickups take on even more dynamic response, bridging the gap between passive and active.This marriage of vintage design and state of the art electronics gives the SAVX Set a much smoother tonal response when played clean or with overdrive. If you're looking for quiet single coil pickups with a vintage look and sound, the SAVX Set is a perfect choice. Using the EMG Solderless wiring makes installing these pickups hassle free.
