The SPC or "Strat Presence Control" is often called the fat control. The original intent of the SPC was to turn the tone of a single-coil pickup into a dual-coil. This is accomplished by boosting the gain in a broad mid-band fashion and reducing the highs. The result is a fatter, louder tone from any single coil pickup, but you can also use it on a humbucker to give you a high output, really fat tone that's great for slide guitar. The SPC is featured on the EMG-DG20.
The EMG-SPC is an active midrange boost circuit. Mounted on a potentiometer, the SPC gives up to 6dB boost at 1300Hz while rolling off the highs. When used with an EMG-S or SA single-coil pickup, you can recreate a humbucking tone without routing. With an EMG humbucker, you'll get a broadened mid-peak and a rounder tone. When turned all the way down (counter-clockwise), the SPC yields flat response.
