Maddie Rice/ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

""My main priority for pickups is versatility, since I play many different styles in a single day. With a few pedal and volume/tone knob adjustments I have yet to find something my EMG SAVs and 57s can’t do. I also believe a player’s sound primarily comes from her or himself-not from equipment- and EMG pickups have always allowed my voice to shine through.""
