EMG HZ is a series of passive humbucker guitar pickups by EMG, Inc. Separate series of same-named HZ pickups exists for electric basses.

All EMG HZ series pickups have the EMG 5-wire "quik-connect" output, that comes as a 5-pin male connector on a pickup body and a 5-wire cable to connect it. Easy wire color code scheme that is the same for all EMG products simplifies soldering and installation.
