Electrics

  • UK made Bare Knuckle 14k Abraxus (their Mule with added kick!) with aged nickel cover

A vintage voiced humbucker with an exquisite vocal tone, balanced mid-range projection and sweet harmonic overtones.

Utilising the same sand-cast Alnico IV magnet as The Mule, the Abraxas humbucker provides similar breadth and detail across the mid range but with considerably 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.

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.

  • CTS pots,
  • Sprague orange drop capacitor,
  • Switchcraft Jack,
  • braided wire.

Testimonials

I always wanted a double humbucker guitar with a trem. My guitar built by 42nd street earlier this year has just that. I was shown a few models which felt so comfortable and light with a great worn in feel to the necks. They helped  me through the design options and I chose to have my dream guitar finished in a copper colour with a matching headstock and white body binding. It looks totally stunning, the build and quality of the finish are fantastic and with both pickups coil split has all the sounds I could ever want. Great work!
