The EMG AB 220 (Afterburner) is a boost you can use in place of your tone (or volume) knob. The AB 220 differs from the standard AB as it features two detent positions, the first at +8dB the seconds at +15dB and 20dB in the max position. This variable gain boost is perfect for increasing the volume of your clean tone or pushing a tube amp into overdrive. This is a great option for players looking to increase their volume for leads. This boost works with both active and passive pickups.

Great add on

Somn /Reviewed 11/6/2016

I added this to my 9 string baritone and was really impressed by it. It's something that's going to stay in my gear setups from now on.

Not what I expected

Adam /Reviewed 4/11/2015

I bought this for a guitar (passive non-EMG pickups) in which I had an EMG PA-2 installed. The PA2 has been great but the switch lever finally broke off. I figured the AB220 would be a nice new replacement for it. The AB220 works alright, but EMG needs to change the product description because the part I got is NOT a push/pull pot like the original AB. For the 220, you engage the gain by turning it up past 0. It looks like they just copied everything for the AB and added the detente portion. It has two notched positions in the middle of the play, as the description says. As for ease of install, it was easy for me because I still had the old harness for my PA2 in there so it was literally swap it out and plug it in.
Overall, I will keep it because I got it more as a toy for a tertiary guitar anyway. I just recommend EMG update the product description to match what this part really is so others aren't fooled about it. I realize it's a new product, but they should really be more on top of that.
