Guitarist, producer, tone hunter: Polymath
Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood signature humbucker set
"The Polymath humbuckers are an antidote to scooped, harsh or boomy tone, they’re all about broad, characterful midrange, addictively juicy playing feel and trim, percussive low end.
They’ve got just the right amount of output to be capable of any style, whether classic cleans, wailing leads or brutal chugs and anything in between.
That said, the Polymaths have real personality too: the bridge pickup has chunky pick attack, vocal midrange and a harmonic richness that glorifies the nuances in your playing, while the neck pickup is deep, woody and clear when clean, taking on a liquidy and articulate character under gain.
Dynamics-wise, the Polymaths are right in the sweet spot again: they have a rewarding responsiveness that invites you to dig in, but they’re not fussy or unflattering on your technique.
The coils also combine and split beautifully, but my personal favourite is the parallel-coil sound of each pickup - they really sound somewhere between a P90 and a hot tele. It’s amazing to have such genuinely usable alternative voices at your disposal.
I couldn’t be happier with the Polymaths, they are truly a “Goldilocks” pickup set that I know will sound amazing in any style of guitar, and in any tuning range."
Polymaths are available with 4 conductor hookup for advanced wiring concepts, as well the full range of Bare Knuckle finishes, including a custom ‘Nolly’ etch and pickup tattoos.
All rock and progressive metal playing styles.
