For lovers of the Strat sound who want even more control and versatility, the EMV SAV active pickup for Strat features alnico V pole pieces and a modern, rounded take on the classic, dynamic tone of a Stratocaster.
Here's what EMG say about the SAV active Strat pickup
The SAV is a single coil that has the tone, clarity, responsiveness and a look that vintage enthusiasts will appreciate, all topped off by EMG's reliability and quality of workmanship. Very similar to the SV, this model differs by featuring flat alnico V pole pieces, which provides the balanced field necessary for a more even response when using today's strings and flatter neck designs. Tonally based on early Strat designs, you'll hear that familiar peaky response giving it a vintage "quack", but because it's truly a marriage of vintage design and state of the art with its newly designed preamp, this modern take has a much smoother tonal response whether played clean or overdriven; and with more output too! If you're looking for a pickup that departs from the usual, the SAV is a perfect choice.
