If you love the sound of single-coils, but hate the hum, than we have what you’ve been searching for. The SX provides increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG’s are renowned for. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets and powered by a newly designed preamp, the tone of the SX is hot enough to drive an amp with plenty of top end sizzle, and give solid lows and mids that ooze presence to make your solos sing. With internal shielding and the new low impedance preamp, you get virtually noiseless operation at a higher output level so that all the tone makes it to your amp. Additionally, the ceramic bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during string bends, and makes for a playability and reliability that is unrivaled. Give it a try and experience why the “X” factor is exciting players all around the world.
