Bare Knuckle Abraxas Humbucker Pickup Set Nickel
Bare Knuckle Pickups, in England, makes great sounding pickups and you have to hear them and feel their touch responsiveness to truly understand how superior they are.
The Bare Knuckle Abraxas humbucker set is a faithful reproduction of the sound that made Santana famous. But that is just a generalization.
Bare Knuckle describes the Abraxas as a "vintage voiced humbucker with an exquisite vocal tone, balanced mid-range projection and sweet harmonic overtones."
The Abraxas humbucker uses a sand-cast Alnico IV magnet and can be described as a vintage humbucker with more power. The 43 AWG plain enamel scatter-wound coils retain the harmonic complexity of the vintage humbuckers adding more bottom-end depth and smoother control in the high-end, particularly in brighter guitars.
This is a callbrated, matched set, with nickel covers. Players looking for more mid range crunch and the ability to drive an amp naturally will enjoy the classic voice of the Abraxas humbucker. The higher output also allows for excellent coil splits and it cleans up well with the volume pot.
