Customising Bare Knuckle Pickups

All Bare Knuckle pickups are available in various formats, all of which can be special-ordered from Andertons. Unless otherwise stated, web listings are for standard configuration humbuckers. These are 50mm standard spacing (i.e. for a fixed-bridge single-cutaway style guitar such as Gibson® Les Paul® guitars), 4 conductor wiring, short-leg humbuckers. Should you require a 53mm spaced humbucker (for guitars fitted with a trem), 2 conductor wiring, long legs, and/or a different coloured cover, you will need to special-order this pickup by phone or in the shop. Full details of Bare Knuckle Pickup options are available from

Here's what Bare Knuckle say about Painkiller Pickups

The ultimate high output 'Djent' humbucker with raw and focused grinding crunch, extremely fast bass response and aggressive upper mid impact.

The hi-mid peak of the Painkiller humbucker together with its powerful triple ceramic magnet design makes it the perfect pickup for progressive technical metal styles. A combination of tight, resonant lows and intense pick attack lets the Painkiller dominate and punch through any mix. Clarity is never compromised, no matter how much gain is applied or how low the tuning and, as with the Cold Sweat, pick harmonics are totally effortless.

The Painkiller neck humbucker is powered by a custom size ceramic bar magnet for masses of power and liquid-like sustain as well as matching the bridge in output. Although not the major role of a high output ceramic humbucker, clean tones have a fat, modern voice with the combination of bridge and neck being particularly good.
