Mississippi Queen 90
The Mississippi Queen humbucker-size P90 was the first HSP90 made by Bare Knuckle back in 2005, and it quickly rose through the ranks; it has been used by players as varied as Adrian Legg and Matt Bellamy.
By popular demand, we are now offering the same Mississippi Queen spec in traditional soapbar and dogear P90 formats.
Wound with 42AWG plain enamel wire, the bridge Mississippi Queen is powered by Alnico V magnets and the neck has Alnico IV magnets. While the bottom-end is solid and the highs really sing, it's the mid-range where it's really at; all the muscle of a humbucker but a much wider frequency response, allowing the mids to really breathe.
Into a clean amp the tone is fat and earthy, crank up the gain and the Mississippi Queen can absolutely scream. Add plenty of headroom for superb dynamic control and a calibrated neck for complete balance and you get a set of P90s that can cover just about anything.
Blues, Country, Funk, Indie, Alternative, Hard Rock and even Metal.
Any solid body guitar or semi- acoustic guitar; well suited to baritones and drop tuned guitars.
