Kirk Hammett first visited EMG back in the early 80ï¿½s when Metallica was a local group on the rise. The KH20 system joins the EMG-81 with a pair of EMG-S single-coil pickups. These pickups are all built around ceramic magnets for the tightest, most controlled sound. Theyï¿½re mated with a five-position switch and master volume and tone controls. Simple, no-nonsense, and as direct as a flamethrower!
The KH20 comes pre-assembled on a custom Pearl White pickguard with contrasting black knobs.
When youï¿½re playing in front of 30,000 moshing fans and 750,000 watts of lights, reliability and quiet operation become very important - but never more important than having that killer tone. Install the KH20 system in your guitar and youï¿½ll hear why Kirk (and James Hetfield, too!) place EMG at the center of their sound.
WARNING - Your standard Strat-style body may require additional routing at the bridge pickup position to accommodate the larger humbucking pickup.
Package Includes: Prewired to the specifications of each artist. Complete and ready to mount to your guitar.
- Two EMG-S single-coil active pickups one EMG-81 humbucker - Five-way selector switch - Volume knob and tone controls - Deluxe Pearl White pickguard with black knobs - Battery clip and switching output jack
