In 2010 EMG Pickups introduced the 57/66 Set. Now, 10 years later it is releasing the dual mode versions of one of its most popular sets. These pickups feature selectable single and dual coil sounds using EMG’s proprietary three coil design. The 66 model finger board pickup features its popular humbucker design while the single coil selection gives the player brilliant fluidness. The 66 is a truly hybrid in design using both ceramic and alnico magnets. By utilizing both magnet types the tone from the single coil position is clear and powerful. The 57 bridge pickup uses a combination of alnico and steel making it a true rocker in both single and dual coil positions. The single coil selection is smooth and seamless. The high resonance of the pickup carries the tone with unequivocal clarity. This being the extension of the popular 57/66 Set, EMG has taken this set to a whole other level. The 57/66 TW Set includes EMG’s solderless wiring harness with a push pull potentiometer for each pickup along with two standard tone controls to fit any configuration.
NOTE: Standard EMG humbuckers are 0.9” thick. The 57/66TW thickness is 1.1”. Difference of 0.22”.
