The SA is an active single coil pickup loaded with an Alnico V bar magnet that has an unmistakable Stratâ„¢ sound: bright, airy, with a rich bottom end. With internal shielding and a low impedance preamp, you get a virtually noiseless pickup without sacrificing a true single coil tone. The Alnico V bar magnet allows for the output to remain balanced during big string bends that makes for a beautifully articulate tone. The creamy mid-range warmth creates sublime blues tones that are clear, strong and expressive. Experience why players the world over rely on EMG single coil pickups in the studio and on the stage.

Amazing pick ups and customer service!

Kevin N /Reviewed 3/7/2018

After a lot of research, I decided to go with the SA pickups in the neck and mid positions. It truly is noiseless while retaining the classic strat chime and tone that you would expect. Extremely versatile, these pickups really add a nice bit of oomph over the stock pick ups I was using in my MIM.

I'm a big fan of EMG and also own an 81,85,50 and sx as well. Could not recommend this company and pickups more!

Installed two SA and an 81 in a tired old Strat

Richard /Reviewed 9/15/2017

The ease of installation was expected, the clarity and usefulness of the instructions a welcome surprise.

Musically, great tone and volume from the SA's once distanced properly from the strings. In the old alder body strat they are clear and warm not overly bright.
