Richie Faulkner And Andy James - EMG 57 + 66

Wed, 17 October 2012
Judas Priest axeman Richie Faulkner and our own Andy James have unveiled EMG's new pickup models

For many weeks, readers have been asking us what pickups Andy has been using in his guitar and why he stopped using EMGs, now we can finally reveal the new model and all will make a little more sense.

A true original, the 57-B is a bridge pickup designed for today’s player regardless of style or genre. The unique combination of Alnico V magnets and steel pole pieces evoke an unmistakably PAF-like quality in its tone. The active attributes provide the headroom and punch necessary to deliver unparalleled definition and presence.

The 66-N is a result of pickup design innovation inspired by the specific needs and requests of today’s players. Alnico V magnets provide the warm, smooth mid-range and expansive lows while the ceramic pole pieces bring out the clarity in the upper register.

Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner has also been into the EMG studio to shoot a video talking about the pickups which he now loves more than anything, check it out.
