The EMG RA-2 Pro Crossroads Set is a great example of the brands movement towards the single coil sphere. If you’re aiming to recreate the Strat tones made famous by the likes of Hendrix and Clapton then you’ve found what you’re looking for. The scratchplate found here features a clean, black finish.
The pickups on offer in the set are voiced with a unique, individual resonant frequency. These provide you with the classic blues tone you’re accustomed to (in position 1, 3 and 5), plus a quality balance (in positions 2 or 4).
Traditional Strat Wiring
The RA-2 is wired like any traditional Strat with the added benefits of tone controls for the middle pickups and the neck. You’ll also get all the positives of active pickups here, partnered together with the dynamic response that vintage passives are known for.
