Designed and voiced specifically as neck and bridge pickups, the 57 & 66 humbuckers have a sleek modern look that compliments any instrument.

PAF With an Attitude

5

EMG is often known for having extremely aggressive and sometimes tone-draining high output pickups. Their 57/66 set though, is a near-perfectly done active PAF. It still retains all the nice, clear tones with a tad bit of bite from a PAF, but with the added headroom of the built-in preamp. These pickups are great for everything from blues to metal, and remain extremely articulate regardless of how much gain you put them through (assuming you are using a reasonable level of gain). The black brushed chrome cover is sexy and looks great with just about any color of hardware, even if it doesn't match.
