In early 2009, James Hetfield contacted EMG Pickups president Rob Turner and presented him with a challenge: to create a stealth looking set that captures the clarity and punch of a passive pickup and still retains the legendary active tone that molded a generation. After exhaustive live-show testing through twenty prototypes, the result is the EMG JH Set: an active two-humbucker rig that will give your axe the new signature sound of Metallica’s iconic rhythm guitarist. When you’re forging your own sonic frontiers, that’s a great place to start from!
