Here's what EMG say about the SL20 Steve Lukather Set
Most well known as a founding member of Toto, Steve Lukather's style is unique. He is known for fast, melodic lines that often combine blues phrases with jazzy 'out' notes. His vibrato is very pronounced and unique. Well versed in theory, Lukather can follow chord charts and changes as a jazz musician would. To authentically capture his technique and style, Steve relies on his EMG Pro-Series system, the SL20.
This set utilizes two Alnico V loaded SLV single coils and an 85 humbucker set up with a single master volume and tone, all prewired onto a custom 11-hole black pearl pickguard with black knobs. This is the perfect set to go from smooth jazz to hard rock; clean and simple.
