The neck is made out of an old growth (very very old growth pattern grade) piece of mahogany that was a railroad beam at some point, the fretboard is an exceptionally dark piece of ebony, and the frets are steel.
I can’t believe I haven’t made a post about this yet so here goes.
I got my Bare Knuckle Pickups Juggernauts installed in My Ibanez RGD2127Z 7 string recently and I’ve been loving it so goddamn much! <3 I went for a brushed nickel finish and gold bolts and of course the ‘bulb’ etch, which is the sole reason why I got them in covers instead of just open coil. The pictures do not convey the beauty of these pickups but they look absolutely gorgeous! and the sound, oh the sound *minigasm* , it’s everything I ever wanted, the ultra-tightness of the low end and the sweet high-end for leads due to that alnico magnet and ceramic flanker magnet is genius work by Tim Mills and the signature sound of that chord clarity that Bare Knuckles have because of that scatter-winding technique done by hand, not to mention the dynamics that really lets your right hand speak because the moderate output and lesser compression it’s basically the perfect pickup! (for my tastes) and that neck pickup ooh that sweet buttery sound while still having that attack and space for the finger tone to come through and again lesser output and compression means that I get to step up my shredding game is just sooo good!
Tim Mills, Misha Mansoor and my dad, Thank you
also special shoutout to Alberto Music for the installation!
