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 Matthew 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, Manson's have 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 existing MBK-1 custom P-90 in a humbucker set continue to provide hot-rodded blues and rock tones with a punchy, clean, single coil vibe whilst the ever-popular MBK-2 set combine a further modified P-90 humbucker neck pickup with a fat, mid heavy, highly defined custom bridge humbucker utilising Alnico V magnets.

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 launch of the MBK-3's comes after extensive consultation with Mansons and is the culmination of years of experience developing the best sounding pickups money can buy.

The MBK-3 pickup sets are available now from Mansons direct at http://www.mansons.co.uk and retail for £229 including VAT.
