The EMG Retro Active Fat 55-7 humbucker set was inspired by the ingenuity, tone, and feel of the original PAF, evoking the best tones of the 50’s and 60’s. This version of the Fat-55 set is specifically designed for seven string instruments. No longer limited by the technology of that era, this classic looking humbucker set adds a newly designed external preamp that provides the benefit of a low-impedance output; virtually no hum or added noise. The Alnico magnets in traditional open coil bobbins deliver fat, warm lows without losing any clarity on the high end. The Fat 55-7 is capable of sitting back in a blues riff or rising up to the overdriven solo with ease. Staying true to conventional design can bring buzz and hum, which is where the new plug-on preamp comes in. The preamp cleans up all of the output noise but retains the passive character of your tone. This is a passive pickup with all the benefits of active technology, yielding a new level of tonal control. The completely solderless Retro Active Fat 55-7 humbucker set is available in a black open-coil housing, giving you the look you love and the tone you need.

Fat 55-7 Back to the Future!

Strat Metheny /Reviewed 10/13/2018

My beloved ESP LTD Deluxe Baritone 7 string came with the 81-7XH/60-7XH set. An excellent set for my processed and gain stuff, but I also play in a Jazz trio backing up a vibraphonist. I was able to use the 60 for this purpose but I really wanted something more PAF like. Thanks to EMG's solderless system, I was in PAF heaven after 10 minutes. Possibly the best PAF I have ever heard, active or passive, and the full tonal pallet with EMG's excellent pots. Loved them so much I bought the Maverick set for my Stratocaster. Back to the future pickups, awesome and great for downtuned metal as well, super clear, super full, super incredible, I love EMG.
