EMG has released the ALX with ABQ EQ/Boost - the new Alexi Laiho signature model.This is a newly designed EMG passive model - custom wound - and includes the new ABQ EQ/Boost which features a push (to activate) / pull (to deactivate) control. The ABQ has a 3 band EQ which can be adjusted for creating different tone settings. The boost output can be adjusted as well to add or subtract gain.
After extensive discussion with Alexi, EMG’s founder, Rob Turner, created a set that was exactly what a true innovator in the world of heavy music was looking for. “This pickup and preamp combo meets Alexi’s demands for something unique that includes high gain, solid tone and clarity to enhance his remarkable style”.
Now, in one package, a player can get all the reliability and innovation that EMG is renowned for, and all the aggressive guitar tone that Alexi is so well known for. The set is available in a Floyd Rose version (F-ALX) and a standard Tuneamatic version (ALX).
