Standing Room Only! SROs are the first open-coil (nonencapsulated) passive pickups from veteran active pickup maker EMG. They require no battery, the classic Alnico 5 magnet helps produce a more traditional sound, and the price won't bust your wallet. SRO OC1 humbuckers feature warm tone with a good balance of clarity and high gain. They're versatile pickups for rock, blues, metal or country, with punch when you need it. The neck position pickup produces a vintage sound; the bridge pickup has hotter specifications for more power.
