METAL! Ceramic magnets, 8.5k, nickel cover. PRS is pleased to introduce \m/ (metal) pickups! \m/ pickups are great for heavier styles of music and were designed with the metal community in mind. Both the treble and bass \m/ pickups are wound in house at PRS and utilize ceramic magnets for full, powerful and crystal clear tones. Whether used with massive amounts of gain or played clean, \m/ pickups are the perfect tool for the player who wants aggressive and articulate tone. These high output humbuckers are the first pickups to be sold exclusively as an aftermarket part. Because they were made to be compatible with either a 5-way selector switch or a 3-way switch with a push/pull tone control, these pickups will work with any PRS model.
