EMG Select: need info

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Rob W, Feb 1, 2001.

  1. I recently bought an older model Godin guitar (under the Snow brand). It was made in the '80's and is a very high quality instrument - the neck is unbelievable!

    It came with EMG Select pickups, which as I understand it, are their passive pickups. They actually sound great, so I have no intention of replacing them or anything.

    What I was wondering is if there were other kinds of EMG passive pickups, or do they just have the Select line? I looked on their website and it wasn't obvious if the Selects were the only passive pickups they make or not.

    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    EMG also has a line called EMG-HZ, which I assume stands for Hi-Z or high impedance. These are also passive, but apparently only available to OEM's. They are a newer line than the Selects.
