Kirk Hammett first visited EMG back in the early 80's when Metallica was a local group on the rise. EMG worked closely with him to release his first Pro-Series system, the KH20. Fast forward many years and Metallica is creating music with great tone at its core and Kirk still depends on EMGs for his signature tone.
This Pro-Series system, the EMG KH21, is an 81/81 dual humbucker combination which utilizes powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, creating a guitar tone with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. This setup comes with two volumes and a one master tone all wired to a custom 11-hole white pearl pickguard with contrasting black knobs.
Kirk says "All of my guitars use EMG pickups," and "they're also really great, quiet pickups."
