Based on the original 707, the EMG 808X gives players all the tone and presence they demand in an 8 string guitar pickup with the added headroom of the X series preamp. The EMG 808X eliminates the problem of a muddy low F# string that often lacks rich harmonic character and definition. Featuring Alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, EMG was able to beef up the tone of the low strings while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register. This along with the X preamp provides the responsive and dynamic control that eight string players love. This pickup will articulate every note, chord, and harmonic you ask of it. Used equally in the bridge and neck positions, the EMG 808X pickup will forever change how you hear and play your 8-string guitar. Solderless wiring makes installing the 808X easy to do on your own.
