New Chris Robertson ‘Peacemaker’ signature humbucker set launches today!
23rd September 2022
The Peacemaker rides into town.
The voice of Black Stone Cherry on both lead guitar and vocals, Chris is renowned for his searing live performances, combining slamming riffs and quick-fire melodic soloing with the band’s modern twist on classic hard rock.
With a touring schedule second to none, Chris demands a lot from his guitar tone and our Peacemaker humbuckers have been developed through relentless studio and live work over the past year.
Chris wanted a humbucker set that would be equally at home in both single and double cut guitars as well as solid body and semi acoustics. Output and dynamic feel are crucial elements of his playing style and the Peacemaker humbuckers reflect that muscular, vocal delivery of tone.
"The thing I really love about these pickups, along with the clarity, is how round and full the upper register notes still stay. The higher strings, when you’re taking lead lines or even just chiming through chords, those notes stay right there and poke their chest out just as much as the lower strings. That’s one of the things I’ve always loved about Bare Knuckles, the attention to clarity on every note. I’m super excited to get these pickups out there." Chris Robertson
The Peacemaker pickups are PAF voiced humbuckers spiced up to deliver vintage hot output powered by isotropic Alnico V magnets and our custom scatterwound coils, all individually wound by hand at our workshops in Cornwall, UK.
Both bridge and neck are precisely calibrated to work as a matched pair, producing the perfect balance of output for scorching rock guitar tones.
Peacemaker humbuckers are available with the full range of Bare Knuckle standard and custom options, including the new and exclusive striking Peacemaker mandala "peace" etch.
