Kirk Hammett has been ripping up solos for Metallica for over 30 years. Riffs on Ride the Lighting, Master of Puppets, and the Black Album are a must learn for all rock guitarists. For Kirk, his tone starts with EMG pickups. "Metallica's crunch sound is often cleaner than people expect", says Kirk. "My taste in tone has definitely changed over the years. I don't like to use as much distortion these days - I prefer my tone to be nice and crisp". The new Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set is the result of taking the success of Metallica tone and adding some new elements without sacrificing gain for clean or vice-versa. By making slight pre-amp adjustments and combining Alnico 5 and Ceramic magnets the perfect tone-beast was created. The Bone Breaker set consist of the BB-B Ceramic bridge and the BB-N Alnico 5 neck pickups. If you are looking for rhythm or lead tone, the Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set offers crisp crushing leads or smooth rounded rhythm tone at the flip of the selector switch.

Package includes EMG's Solderless Install System.

Sounds great, I own lots of emg pickup combinations. 81/60, 57/66, 81/85, JH-Set. These are definitely different set !!! rhythm sound bridge pickup:, heavier than EMG 81, not as heavy as JH SET. Right in the middle ! Real tight riffing, super note definition on heavy distortion. Galloping and chugging on open E is unreal. And awesome harmonics and sustain lead shred. neck pickup is great for slow feel leada, think fade to black intro solo, sanitarium, one, TDTNC, Halo. It's built for all these type songs. Def got the Hammett sound ! Easy install, under 45 minutes !
