A high-output, 7-string humbucker that's ideal for lead guitar, soloing, and high-volume overdrive.

The high-output EMG 81-7X active guitar pickup is designed especially for the 7-string lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high-volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock 'n' roll or overdriving your amp, there's a razor-sharp attack and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a 7-string rock pickup, the EMG 81-7X is the one.

The 81-7X and other EMG pickups from the X-Series provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG 81-7Xs are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.

The EMG 81-7X guitar pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System, a split shaft volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, plus screws and springs.

Comments about EMG 81-7X 7-String Active Guitar Pickup:

Amazing pickup! I have an Ibanez RGA7 which is notorious for its muddy, not so great sounding stock pickups. I threw in an EMG-81-7x in the bridge along with a 60-7x in the neck position and WOW! it made a world of a difference. It went from a good sounding guitar to an AMAZING sounding guitar that can handle just about all styles that use 7-string guitars.
