The Abraxas is a vintage-voiced humbucker with an superlative vocal tone, balanced mid-range projection and sweet harmonic overtones.
Players looking for more mid range crunch and the ability to drive an amp naturally will enjoy the classic voice of the Abraxas humbucker. The higher output also allows for excellent coil splits and it cleans up well with the volume pot.
Utilising the same sand-cast, Alnico IV magnet as The Mule, the Abraxas humbucker provides similar breadth and detail across the mid-range but packs considerably more power. The 43 AWG plain enamel scatter-wound coils retain the harmonic complexity of the vintage humbuckers, which adds more bottom-end depth and smoother control in the high-end, particularly in brighter guitars.
Available in all our open coil and covered custom finishes.
