Used on David's main red Strat.
David has used this same EMG system for many years on his main red Strat. The DG20 pickup comes with 3 ivory SA single-coil pickups, wired with an EXG guitar expander, an SPC presence control, and master volume - all on a deluxe white pearl pickguard, ivory pickups, and white knobs. The SA single-coil pickups feature Alnico magnets which give a full round tone with an accentuated mid range. The EMG-EXG guitar expander circuit increases the bass and treble while reducing the mids, perfect for chord definition at higher volumes, while the SPC makes the SAs sing by boosting the mids and turning your single coils into full blown humbucking!
Now you can have the same guitar pickups and tone accessories as David, but keep practicing if you want to get to the "Dark Side of the Moon."
For flexibility in tone at your fingertips, there is no better choice than the EXG guitar expander. The frequency response of the EXG is similar to normal guitar amp equalization. The lows and highs are boosted while the midrange is dipped out. The EXG is great for creating a fuller tone that doesn't get muddy, while keeping it clean and clear, letting your guitar stand out in the mix.

Comments about EMG-DG20 David Gilmour Pre-Wired Pickguard/Pickup Set:
I hesitated in buying the DG drop in active pickups but I am glad I did. I can't say enough the versility of the pups are amazing. I can play Texas blues but by makeing a slight adjustment with the tone nobs I am playing metal. Terrific highs, mids and bass. Very strati when you want it to be or Rock and Heavy Metal when you need it.
