The H pickup is EMG's original single-coil pickup design in a humbucker housing. The H has the same noiseless operation and clarity as its single coil brother which debuted in 1974. Featuring a ceramic magnet, this pickup provides a wide frequency response for clarity, a bright tone, and a rich blend of harmonics. This pickup is an excellent choice for the rhythm guitarist who needs added definition for chording, or for lead work when the crisp attack of a single coil pickup is desired. The solderless installation makes this pickup easy to install at home.

Best neck humbucker pickup!

RR /Reviewed 3/24/2019

The EMG H pickup is a stack humbucker like the S single coil inside a humbucker housing.
Basically that’s like two small bobbins stacked on a Ceramic bar magnet standing up instead laid flat like a side-by-side bobbin humbucker.
So the magnet is the pole piece in effect. The irony it’s like a humbucker version of a Danelectro Lipstick Tube that’s also a standing magnet wrapped with single coil wire winding to be the pole piece then put inside WWII surplus lipstick tubes.
The H has the Ceramic tight bottom and highs with sharper attack than an Alnico V HA.
It has the warm tone of an old Charlie Christian pickup or a Burns Trisonic in the neck.
I love it with the EMG 81 in bridge so the volume output matches evenly softest at H neck then louder in middle to loudest at 81 bridge.
It doesn’t have that middle pickup out-of-phase like two normal side-by-side humbuckers and the tight sharper attack matches the 81 perfect as a pair.
It’s in my modded Gibson Flying V and matches beautifully.
Thanks and hats off to Ms Alison Turner for her advice on this pair of pickups together.
It’s a blast to play them and their evocative qualities together!
