Bareknuckle Riff Raff Calibrated Humbucker Pickup Set, Covered, Nickel
THE RIFF RAFF HUMBUCKER HAS A TIGHT AND PUNCHY BASS RESPONSE WITH A SMOOTH BITE IN THE HIGH-END; THE EPITOME OF THE VOICE OF EARLY '60S HUMBUCKER-DRIVEN ROCK'N'ROLL.
The Riff Raff humbucker is based on the shorter rough cast Alnico V PAFs of 1960, with a more symmetrical wind of 42 AWG plain enamel wire providing more focus in the upper-mids and brighter highs. While the same build standard and components of the other vintage humbuckers in the range apply, the Riff Raff delivers a more aggressive vintage tone and unmistakable rock voice. The bottom-end is deep but very controlled and coupled with the extra cut in the high-end, allow for plenty of snap and a classic range of organic, clean and driven tones.
Although voiced as a vintage rock humbucker, hard rock and metal players will enjoy the punchy and focused tone when used with high-gain rigs.
