The 58 is one of EMG's original humbucking designs that was abandoned because it was too noisy. The 58 has a bit of hum to it, but has a classic tone that is fat and round. Perfect as a rhythm and blues pickup, the 58 has loads of output, similar to a P-90, only not muddy.During our search for sourcing the best available "chrome " finish cover cap, we found that the available products could not be ordered with any consistency. Most importantly, since the manufacturing process would not be controlled by us, there was no way of knowing how the sound and tonal performance characteristics of our pickups would be affected. This characteristic was something that also could vary from batch to batch. Finally, we could not find any US manufacturers. We knew at that point, that the "buy " solution would not work for us.
