Guitar virtuoso Marty Friedman relies on only the best of everything to deliver his unique one-of-a-kind guitar mastery. EMG had been part of this equation for the former Megadeth guitarist for years. EMG president and founder Rob Turner set out to develop a brand new passive signature set for Marty that delivered all of the dynamic response, power, punch and clarity that only EMG can.
With alnico 5 magnets and a brand new recipe for winding the custom made bobbins, the result was exactly what Marty had been searching for. Available in Marty’s favorite brushed black chrome finish, these pickups look as deadly as they sound. “When I heard this pickup, I knew it was "the one" because it made me want to keep playing and never stop. This is my sound. I’m glad EMG took the time to get it right.
