""Not only do EMG do the best sounding pickups on the market…they do the best looking, too. The H1A set in my favourite Charvel, my black and gold Pro Mod DK24, sound incredible. It gives me the clarity, smoothness and overall responsiveness I was after for so long! It’s a massive bonus that they look GORGEOUS in my guitar, too." "

My name is Kieran Johnston and I am the lead guitarist of metal outfit Perpetua, having been in the band since its inception in 2014. I have played guitar since the age of 14 and I’m heavily influenced from the likes of Paul Gilbert, Marty Friedman, Nuno Bettencourt etc. and have used what I have learned to combine it into my own unique sound.

I currently endorse Charvel guitars and my first real introduction to EMG pickups was the passive H1A set which I put into my Satin Black DK24 Pro Mod. I was blown away by the sound I was getting, the responsiveness…the TONE! I instantly fell in love with the brand afterwards.
