EMG Pickups brings you the ST-65 passive prewired Stratocaster pickguard. The ST-65 system is the newest passive additions to EMG’s SRO Series. The ST-65 features EMG’s solderless technology and are drop in ready for a seamless install.
The ST-65 pickguard is loaded with pickups featuring Alnico 5 magnets for a classic Strat tone. Alnico 5 magnets have a magnetism of 1,000 Gauss giving the pickup a much more direct attack. Overall, the tone could be described as more classic. The low frequency response has a brightness to it that is carried through the mid-range. Alnico 5 results in a higher resonant frequency for a bright & clear response typical of Stratocaster pickups.
The Alnico 5 pickup is built in the traditional fashion with original style construction but feature a two pin connector for easy installation & tinkering.
Made in California, the ST-65 passive system is on a three ply, 11 hole pickguard with a 5 position switch, master volume and tone controls on the neck and middle positions. The pickguards are available in black on black or white on white, giving them a classic and clean look that matches their tone.
