Bare Knuckle Mississippi Queen P90 Set, Humbucker Spaced - Chrome Cover
- Fast Shipping!
The Mississippi Queen is a true P90 single coil mounted onto a humbucker chassis. It was our first humbucker-size P90 and has become the benchmark for all HSP90 tone.
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. Fitting into any standard humbucker cavity, the Mississippi Queen offers humbucker players a direct replacement to experience true P90 tone without having to modify their guitars.
The wide and squat coil of a P90 creates a fatter tone compared to a Strat or Tele coil, while the twin magnet design gives all the power of a hot humbucker. 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 HSP90s that can cover just about anything.
