Boot Camp Old Guard

Old Guard pickups are hand-wound, feature Alnico II magnets and are suitable for classic blues, rock, country, pop and alternative tones. Old Guard pickups are in the low output range and produce an open, dynamic tone.

Below is the Old Guard video, produced for Bare Knuckle by highly respected guitarist Rabea Massaad. In the video, Rabea demos the four types of Old Guard pickup: humbuckers, Strats, Teles and P90s. Watch and, above all else, listen to the videos, choose your tone and choose your pickup. Then head to our dealer’s page to place your order!
