The 60X humbucker packs plenty of output with a balance of thick, boosted mids, big lows and singing highs. Featuring close aperture coils, similar to a mini-humbucker, this model produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain. Due to its ceramic magnets, the EMG 60X has a full treble response and loads of output, great for distinct single-note solos. With the addition of the X Series preamp, the 60X provides even more clarity and character to your guitar than the original. Like all EMG active guitar and bass pickups, the 60X installs without the use of a soldering iron, making it easy to do at home.
