Kirk Hammett first visited EMG back in the early 80's 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. They're mated with a five-position switch and master volume and tone controls.
The KH20 comes pre-assembled on a custom Pearl White pickguard with contrasting black knobs.
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.
Also, be sure to check out the Pro Series Kirk Hammett KH21 System. This companion system features ferocious twin EMG-81 pickups.
