There is no question Vince Gill's music whether you call it country or country rock has made him one of the most sought-after artists in music. His award winning performances are enhanced by his use of EMG pickups. These pickups can be found on his main guitar and includes The S Single coil set with a master volume, master tone, and paired up with a SPC presence control that replaces the standard rear tone, all prewired directly onto a custom 11-hole pickguard with black knobs.
The EMG-S set features the same construction as the SA but replaces the Alnico magnet with ceramic. It has the equivalent output of the SA but the S features a brighter tone quality accentuated in the upper middle to high frequency response (similar to later model s style pickups).Country artists such as Vince Gill prefer the EMG-S system because it can translate a player's technique faithfully. Each S set includes a five-position selection switch, volume and tone controls, and output jack that's ready to install onto your pickguard with only three solder connections required.
EMG-SPC - The SPC or 'Presence Control' is often called the fat control. The original intent of the SPC was to turn the tone of a single-coil pickup into a dual-coil. This is accomplished by boosting the gain in a broad mid-band fashion and reducing the highs. The result is a fatter, louder tone from any single coil pickup, but you can also use it on a humbucking to give you a high output, really fat tone that's great for slide guitar.
