EMG Pickups / SPC / Electric Guitar Pickups, Bass Guitar Pickups, Acoustic Guitar Pickups
Anyone have experience with these. I believe these are on the David Gilmour EMG set and they look geared towards single coils. I've been toying the idea of installing one on my Xiphos with EMGs (81/85), with the concept of eliminating the boost (even when the 81/85s are compressed enough). Or does that sound like a redundantly bad idea?
I had one in my soloist when I still had EMG's in it. My soloist is a HSS. It is indeed designed for single coils to make them sound like a humbucker but I did use it on my bridge humbucker sometimes for solos. It is basically a mid boost and it will really fatten up your tone. I do not think it will work well as a replacement for your boost pedal because although it does boost your mids it does not dump any lows. When I tried using it like this for rhythms it was very muddy and did not work well. I also had a PA2 preamp on this guitar and I think it would work better for what you are trying to do.
