For humbucker equipped guitar, any position

By combining ceramic magnets with a narrow aperture, the EMG-60 has increased sensitivity and high-frequency response. The 60 features the attack of a single-coil with the power and the punch of a humbucking pickup. In the mid-to-high frequency range, EMG gave the harmonics a boost. There's more high end in the EMG-60 than you would expect from any humbucking pickup. With a distinctive tone for soloing, the 60 works equally well for singing leads or for melody chording.

And now for something completely different. The EMG-60 was originally designed for Fender in 1979 and was to be featured on the Tele-Elite Model as a mini-humbucking pickup. Fender changed their plans so EMG released the EMG-60 in a full-size humbucking housing. The EMG-60 still features the close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any of their many humbucking models. Yet the EMG-60 packs plenty of output with both clarity and cut through high end.

The EMG-60 is incredible for rhythm guitar as metal and extreme players have discovered. After many years the EMG-60 has found its rightful home on James Hetfield's signature ESP models JH-2 and JH-3. Its distinctive crunch sets any rhythm player apart in the mix of a band that pumps a lot of mid-range from the stage. With a distinctive tone for soloing, the 60 works perfectly as a clear but fat lead pickup.
The resonance slope is steeper but the peak is higher than other EMG Models. The 60 is the result of a lot of input from different people. It is probably the most versatile humbucking pickup they make, but doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
