The SA is an active single coil pickup loaded with an Alnico V bar magnet that has an unmistakable Strat™ sound: bright, airy, with a rich bottom end. With internal shielding and a low impedance preamp, you get a virtually noiseless pickup without sacrificing a true single coil tone.
The Alnico V bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during big string bends that makes for a beautifully articulate tone. The creamy mid-range warmth creates sublime blues tones that are clear, strong and expressive. Experience why players the world over rely on EMG single coil pickups in the studio and on the stage.
