Overview

EMG's most popular system for Stratocaster-type* guitars was originally developed in 1974 but was redesigned along with all the other models in 1979. It was voiced with the help of guitar Repairman/Luthier John Carruthers and his professional clientele. The first professional who spread the gospel about the EMG-SA was Peter Frampton who visited EMG in 1979. By 1985, Peter had turned Steve Lukather on to the system along with a host of others. They can't recall when David Gilmour got his first SA System, but Rob remembers delivering a system in L.A. for David and meeting Phil Taylor (David's main man) for the first time.The EMG-SA combines the attributes of the early Strat* sound but with an added midrange response and higher output. It's "bell-like" ringing harmonics and increased sustain give the SA greater versatility than normally found in single-coil pickups. A single Alnico bar magnet delivers classic overdrive with a smooth midrange distortion, while still retaining the familiar high-end of a single-coil pickup. The internal preamp rejects every bit of hum and buzz for noiseless operation. Only three connections are necessary to complete the assembly. Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cables (3), prewired control set including volume, 2 tone controls, 5-way selection switch (black & white knobs), output jack, and battery clip, screws & springs.
