Kirk Hammett is the guitar soloist for a generation of metal fans, and EMG pickups are the tools of his trade. One of the ways he gets his fierce tone and tight searing harmonics is from his signature Pro-Series system: the EMG KH20. This system joins the EMG 81 humbucker with a pair of S single-coil pickups. These pickups are all built using ceramic bar magnets for the tightest, most controlled sound with incredible versatility and sustain. This setup comes with one tone and a master volume all wired on a custom 11-hole white pearl pickguard with contrasting black knobs.

Amazing set

Old Jeans /Reviewed 12/4/2013

The installation of this set of pickups brought my black USA Fender to life. I have a ESP Custom MII with EMG 81s and wanted to create another "Hammettesque" guitar similar to the Fernandes Edna (all Metallica fans of Ride the Lightening/Puppets era will know). I love the versatility of this set. The 81 in the bridge is tight and focused in its rhythm intensity and can create the most dynamic metal tones. I love having the two single coils as the mid pickup is punchy for clean lines and there is a magical spot that combines the bridge and mid pickup for warm lead tones. A terrific upgrade to your guitar and allows you to have a hot-rodded metal lead machine!
