For years, famed session guitarist and founding member of Toto, Steve Lukather relied on EMG guitar pickups in the studio and on the stage. The EMG SL20 Pro Series system features two of Steve's custom designed SLV single coil pickups and the EMG 85 humbucker with a master volume and tone. The SLV pickups are similar to the SAV pickups, but with increased coil windings for a meatier tone and pole pieces, not a bar, hidden under the solid cap for a more uniform look. When paired with the warm response of the EMG 85 humbucker, the result is a noiseless pickguard set that gives players all the diversity and response Steve Lukather demands.

Great sound and most versatile set on the market

Nuno Mello /Reviewed 2/11/2014

I've always loved the HSS configuration, but always found problems such as noise and huge gap of output between the humbucker and the single coils. I tryed some noiseless pickups of other brands and they just didn't sound as they should. It always just frustrating, I could get the typical strat sounds without noise and with a good level of output to match the humbucker on the bridge.

But then, I decided it was the time to try the SL20 by EMG. Well, it just fits all my needs. Perfect balance between singles and humbucker, glassy straty sounds when needed and punch with this marvellous humbucker on bridge position and all this noise free. It's the perfect match.

I just get myself wondering a dual humbucker on the bridge with the single mode having the same specs of the SLV single! Man...

The perfect would become even greater!

THX EMG TEAM FOR THIS GREAT SOUND, BEAUTIFUL AND VERSATILE SET! I FOUND THE TONE I WAS LOOKING FOR!

Clear sounding

Max /Reviewed 1/14/2014

A great set up for a clear sounding pickups.
So versatile that you can do many things with it.
Te bridge pickup is louder as expected, but a compressor will help you in that sense.
Highly recommendable for a variety of styles.
EMG and Luke did well in this design.
