8-String Guitar Pickups

Your beefy 8-string guitar could do with a new pickup or two. Here’s our selection of punchy pickups suited to fit your extended range instrument.

8-String Guitar Pickups

Finding an appropriately-sized pickup for your 8-string guitar can be a tricky task. That’s no longer the case with our great range laid out right in front of you.

Almost all the pickups you’ll find here are medium-to-high output, suited to rock and metal – and in particular djent styles of music. You’ll need a pickup with a thumping midrange and tight lows.

Brands such as DiMarzio and Seymour Duncan will serve you well for a punchy passive pickup. If you’re into the calculated tone of active pickups, Fishman or EMG are your go-to guys.
