As Good As It Gets
17th August 2022
Several months ago we sent a Chapman ML 1 Pro loaded with Polymath humbuckers over to the guys at Guitar World magazine for review.
We are excited to announce that the Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood signature Polymath humbucker set has since been given a platinum award for excellence, the highest Guitar World award.
Here’s a few excerpts from the review out now in issue 556 of Guitar World:
‘ADAM “NOLLY” GETGOOD is one of those magnificently talented bastards who excels at everything he’s obsessed with…..when the similarly obsessed pickup designers at Bare Knuckle announced their collaboration with Getgood on his own signature Polymath humbucking pickups (Adam had previously helped design acclaimed Bare Knuckle models for other artists), expectations were rightfully high. The end result is a pair of impressive pickups that exceeds the previously perceived limitations of a traditional humbucker design.’
‘Played through a variety of amps, the Polymaths delivered phenomenal tone with a pleasant, vocal midrange, tight and lively bass and surprisingly full-bodied treble without harsh overtones.’
‘Attack is instantaneous and intoxicatingly percussive and chunky, enhancing the definition of every pick stroke or finger pluck.’
‘I was honestly floored by how well these pickups enhanced my playing, inspiring
me to play new licks and making my usual riffs, rhythms and solo noodling sound clearer and more refined than ever.’
‘The midrange is the sweetest and most musical I’ve heard from a pair of humbuckers.’
THE BOTTOM LINE
‘The clarity, dynamic response and impressively refined, musical tones of the Bare Knuckle Polymath humbucking pickups designed in collaboration with Adam “Nolly” Getgood are simply as good as it gets.’
