Bare Knuckle Mule "PAF" Humbucker Pickup Set Nickel


Bare Knuckle Pickups is a small, privately owned business based in the South West of England. The employees are all guitar players with experience in performing and recording. These guys know what they are doing and have quickly earned the reputation of building some of the best sounding pickups on the planet.

We are very excited to be a Bare Knuckles dealer.

Built to the same specifications as the original PAF humbucker, this calibrated set of Bare Knuckles Mule Humbuckers is totally authentic in vintage tone. The coils are scatterwound by hand and offset with a differing number of turns of vintage correct 42 AWG plain enamel wire resulting in outstanding clarity and extended dynamic range. Coupled with an unpolished Alnico IV magnet the tone is seriously organic with detailed bass, fat mids, great bite and more than enough power for most applications. The solid nickel silver baseplate and cover are exact replications of the original along with the butyrate bobbins, nickel plated slugs and Fillister no.5 pole screws, maple spacers and authentic braided hook up wire all made by hand for a lifetime of use. Every Bare Knuckle pickup is hand built and hand wound one at a time, and then tested- meaning "played" and listened to with various amps and gain settings. The "vintage" models are made with exact materials from the era and are not packaged for shipping unless thety really do have that "vintage" tone.

Read online reviews by players who have bought them and you will see why we are excited to be offering Bare Knuckle pickups at Rainbow.

The Bare Knuckle Mule humbucker is advertised as an authentic PAF sounding pickup with great vintage tone. Keeping in mind that when vintage PAF's were actually made there was little consistency in no ... Read More
