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. The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. X's are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
