Both models work with standard or Floyd Rose® / Fender string spread. 13.6K ohms. The H4 has a ceramic magnet for brightness, and the H4A has an Alnico 5 magnet for low-end and midrange emphasis.

Thoroughly "road-tested," HZ pickups were formerly available only on B.C. Rich, ESP, Jackson and Schecter instruments. They're handmade in California by a leader in pickup technology, with precision and attention to detail.

EMG-HZ passive pickups require no batteries and feature high gain and low noise. Each pickup includes a unique 5-pin Quik-Connect™ cable for fast installation and swapping. To minimize noise, all HZs are fully shielded. The coils are potted and the pickups are polymer-encapsulated for microphonic-free performance.

Length: 2.75" (69.85mm)
Width: 1.5" (38.10mm)
Height including mounting tabs: .900" (22.86mm)

Screws, springs and wiring instructions are included. 500K pots recommended.

My Favorite pickup

I use many different pickups in restoring guitars but whenever I build a new guitar I always install these pickups. Chasing a particular players sound is a lot like herding cats. However, when I want to hear the purer sound of the guitar and get an idea of the contribution of the wood to tone and sustain I really prefer the EMG units.

It's Alright.

Installed the ceramic magnet version in the bridge position of my Reverend Double Agent. It didn't have the tone I expected/wanted: it was thin/trebly when clean, and when overdriven it sounded better but was a little muddy. I took it out and put the stock back in.

great sound

these pick ups sound great in my custom made CG Talen. Nice tone with coils tapped too. Lots of overdrive
