. A true P90 single coil mounted onto a humbucker chassis. This is Bare Knuckle Pickups first humbucker-size P90 and the benchmark for all of their HSP90 tone.
The Mississippi Queen humbucker-size P90 was the first HSP90 made by Bare Knuckle back in 2005 and quickly rose through the ranks being 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 hacking their guitars apart to make the P90's fit.
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, 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 breath.
Into a clean amp the tone is fat and earthy, crank up the gain and the Mississippi Queen can absolutely scream. Add plenty of head room for superb dynamic control and a calibrated neck for complete balance and you get a set of HSP90s that can cover just about anything.
