Over the past decade, Vince Gill has won every award in country music. His collection of Grammies, Country Music Association awards, and American Music awards is so extensive that it fills several pages! One listen to his music and you can hear why so many people make him a favored artist. His roots run deep, with a tip of the hat to tradition. Until you get to his guitar solos - his thick and glassy tones are totally modern, defining the sounds of "New Country." To create this unique tone, Vince Gill turns to EMG.
The Pro Series VG20 is the same as the one mounted on Vince Gill's main black Strat*. Featuring EMG's EMG-S single coil pickups for a clean start, Vince uses the SPC Presence control so he can dial-up extra output and crunch whenever he wants. Mounted directly on a Tortoise Shell pickguard the EMG-VG20 is configured with master volume, master tone, and the SPC replacing the standard rear tone control.
EMG-S Pickups feature a ceramic magnet that have a snappy high end with very defined mids and lows. This is one clean system. Vince isn't only the consummate country performer, he's a great Rock and Roll guitar player. If anybody can put a system through the changes, it's Vince. The VG20 is perfect for the studio and even better in live performance, as proven by Vince. Now if you could only sing like him!
Vince Gill sings with a most distinctive voice. His guitar tone is just as distinctive, delivering the full range from classic bright single-coil tones to round, warm solo sounds. Whether on stage or in the studio, it delivers in the most difficult situations with uncompromising tone, noiseless performance, and rock-solid reliability.
