Mansons Guitar Shop & Bare Knuckle Pickups Collaborate for MBK-4 Pickup Set

The latest collaboration features tight, huge bass response and powerful output voiced for hard rock, metal, punk, and beyond.

Devon, UK (May 12, 2010) -- Mansons Guitar Shop and UK custom pickup manufacturers, Bare Knuckle, have collaborated on a set of unique pickups aimed at the contemporary player that seeks tight tone, huge bass response and powerful output.

With more kick than the existing MBK-1 and MBK-2 pickup sets, as featured on the company’s custom guitars and used by artists such as Matt Bellamy and Josh Homme, the new Manson MBK-3 pickup sets feature a tech spec to delight the player to whom the word ‘d-jent’ needs no further explanation.

Far more flexible than a metal sounding pickup, Mansons has been busy experimenting with these custom pickups in several new guitars under wraps at their Devon-based workshops. The specs have been refined to provide a hard-hitting pickup that’s suited to hard rock, metal, punk, and other unruly sounds. Combining the power of three ceramic magnets in the bridge and an Isotropic Alnico V in the neck, these chrome custom etched pickups work in any humbucker equipped guitar.

The new passive pickups are handmade in the UK by Bare Knuckle pickups using the finest materials either manufactured by them or locally sourced. The MBK-3 pickup sets are available now and retail for £229 (approx. $342).
