The EMG SLV was custom designed for famed session guitarist and founding member of Toto, Steve Lukather. The SLV is similar to the SAV pickup, but has increased coil windings for a meatier tone and pole pieces, not a bar, hidden under the solid cap for a more uniform look. Steve had played a specially over-wound SA pickup for years, so EMG used the original preamp from the SA and added flat Alnico 5 pole pieces to give the pickup a more tradition string-to-string sound. The result is a noiseless single coil guitar pickup with a classic EMG sound and pole pieces closer to the individual strings for more output and a punchier attack. Swap this pickup in with ease using EMG’s solderless wiring system.
