"" EMG are not only the most responsive pickups on the planet, they are the most versatile. No matter what genre, the power of these pickups WILL bring out the best of your instrument in any setting!""

I started playing guitar around the age of Thirteen. Growing up with Classic Rock and Heavy Metal, I knew I was born to ROCK! I spent about seven years self taught, playing in my own band, and in my local Church band. After a while I decided it was time to go to music school, and was accetped into The Atlanta Institute of Music in 2009.
That year was when I got my first guitar with EMG pickups. I remember it was an 81/85 set that I got in a guitar as a gift for going to school. Once I plugged that guitar in, my musical world was rocked! I had never hear a guitar cut through the air like this one! I thought to myself, " If this is what active pickups are like, EMG is where it's at!"
I used that guitar for seven years, and it never let me down! I have been in and out of bands since 2010, featuring on plenty of singles. Recently I have gotten myself into two bands, Stoneman and Dead Rites. Both of which I use EMG pickups for guitar, and bass respectively. Now that I'm a full time touring musician, I use EMG pickups more than ever. I don't plan on stopping either!
