The P60A is EMG's 60A humbucker in a P90 style housing. This pickup packs plenty of output with a balance of thick, boosted mids, big lows and balanced highs. Featuring close aperture coils, similar to a mini-humbucker, this model produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain. The Alnico magnets tame some of the highs of the P60, while retaining a smooth treble response and plenty of output. Great in the rhythm position of your guitar for clean bluesy tones or the bridge position for some added crunch and punch to your sound. A solderless install process makes upgrading your guitar's sound easy to do on your own.

Huge, spacious, clear sound

Neil /Reviewed 3/31/2015

I have two of these installed in a mahogany body bolt on guitar. They are the most versatile pickups I've ever used. The bridge sounds really good with a bit of overdrive dirt, like a vintage HB with better string balance. The neck is warm but very articulate. I installed an EXG, which is overkill for distorted tones with the P60As, but for clean tones, the combination is amazing. I currently have this guitar strung with half-rounds, and the neck pickup with the EXG half up sounds so fat through a clean amp it could be mistaken for a big archtop. No one will mistake me for Jim Hall, though, but that's my fault, not the pickup's.

A great soapbar solution!

David /Reviewed 11/7/2014

This is perfect for turning a guitar with a neck-position soapbar into a smooth, beautiful, noise-free performer.

In Ivory you could hardly tell I've fitted actives, but choosing the P60A - with Alnico magnets, gives a vintage tone but with all the benefits of active electronics.

Admittedly, this doesn't sound like a soapbar pickup any more - it sounds like a top-notch neck PAF.

It does however preserve the soapbar looks, which creates one hell of a surprise when heard!

Love this with a P81 in the Bridge to create a guitar with Cigar-Lounge looks but hard-rock tone!
