Seymour Duncan Gus G Signature Humbucker Set - Hard rock and metal guitarists no longer need to choose between the power of active pickups and the response of passive pickups. The Gus G. Fire Blackouts System blends the best aspects of both. This system combines the massive tone, kick, and distortion of Blackouts with the rich tone and expressive feel of my favorite passive pickups,” says Gus G., the exciting young guitarist just off the road with Ozzy Osbourne. “It responds perfectly to all my picking techniques, and more of my personality comes through than with any active pickup I’ve tried.” !
JUST ARRIVED! – The result of a collaboration between John Suhr and rock guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich, the Aldrich humbuckers are the ultimate high-output pickups for aggressive rock style playing. The Aldrich bridge humbucker is now Suhr’s highest-output pickup, but it oozes tone across its sound spectrum. From chunky low-string metal riffing to screaming string bends in the high register, the Aldrich bridge humbucker covers them all while retaining the dynamics of your pick attack.

There is no other pickup built as well as an EMG. The coils are precision wound, matched both resistively and inductively, and finally, vacuum sealed. All internal preamplifiers are Surface Mount Technology (SMT) for quality and reliability. Each pickup is tested for audio quality and reliability before encapsulation and again before shipment. Just by looking at EMG-HZ Pickups you can see they're made differently than any other passive pickup. Under EMG's distinctive cover cap, each HZ Pickup is fully shielded, and coils are vacuum sealed and then encapsulated preventing microphonics. In fact, EMG's HZ Pickups are probably the quietest passive pickup available. By including all of these features and then adding over 25 years of EMG Active Pickup design, passive pickups can't get any better.
