The EMG RA-5 Maverick Five Set is a great example of the brands movement towards the single coil sphere. If you’re looking to reproduce the surf Strat tones introduced by The Surfians and The Chantays, then you’re in the right place. The scratchplate found here boasts a smart, black finish.
Unique Voicing and Traditional Wiring
Each of the pickups are individually voiced, which when combined together creates an impressive, high powered tone. You’ll get the power and cut of an active, paired with the old school sensibilities of passives. The RA-5 is also wired in the same way as a traditional Strat, with added tone controls for both the neck and middle pickups.
