EMG

The EMG F-JR Daemonum Floyd spaced pickup set was designed by Jim Root, a long-time user of the EMG 81/60 combo. After trying various prototypes Root was inspired by a set of modified Retro Active pickups to tailor his tone. He settled on a set that gave him everything he loved from the 81/60 with the added benefits and versatility of the Retro Active design. Unlike traditional open coil pickups, both the bridge and neck pickup utilize stud poles. The fingerboard pickup uses ceramic studs giving it a clean high-end percussive tone. The bridge pickup has black steel poles and features a ceramic magnet, like the EMG 81. Both pickups feature custom Retro Active preamps.
