Audacious tonal tenacity from EMG JH signature humbucking pickups
James Hetfield requested a set of sleek-looking active pickups from EMG with the clarity and punch of passive pickups while still retaining the classic EMG character, and they delivered with the JH “Het” Set you’ll find on the LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature guitar. The neck pickup used ceramic pole pieces for a fuller attack, higher output, and beefier low end. The bridge pickup uses steel pole pieces for a tighter attack and cleaner lows. Between the two, you’ve got a world of tone to explore with the ESP LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW Signature.
