For humbucker equipped guitar, any position

The model H was EMG's original single-coil pickup design. Its original debut was in 1974 as the first noiseless single coil pickup. At that time the humbucking designs we now make weren't even imagined. The H and HA Models were built into humbucking housings for Newman Jones, a guitar builder in Austin, Texas. Newman needed a pickup that didn't have pole pieces for Rolling Stone Keith Richards who plays five string guitar. Newman wanted a single coil sound, but wanted the pickups to be in a humbucking housing. We obliged.

The EMG-H's features include the widest possible frequency response for clarity, and a rich blend of related harmonics. The EMG-HA on the other hand is virtually the same pickup but we simply replace the ceramic magnet with an Alnico for added warmth. Either is an excellent choice for the rhythm guitarist who needs added definition for chording, or for lead work when the bright attack of a single coil pickup is called for. The Newman guitars were outfitted with the H in the rhythm position and the HA in the bridge. Model EMG-H is the same as the EMG-S, while the EMG-HA is the same as the EMG-SA. The only difference is the humbucking housing.
