Accessories - G&L - Sterling by Music Man - Bare Knuckle

Today the G&L factory continues production as Leo would have wanted. His private workshop, the center of his creativity, remains untouched as it was on his last day and has been visited by music people from around the world. While the people of G&L, his people, continue to build the instruments with love, dedication and great skill. In preserving the uniqueness of G&L and respecting the vision of its founder, John C. McLaren said, "G&L will always be willing to make changes. Leo Fender was a symbol of change and evolution for the benefit of musicians. But for any change that is considered, we must first ask ourselves, 'Would Leo have wanted it this way?' If yes, then we do it. If not, then we will not. We always want to feel that Leo Fender would be proud of today's G&L.

About Bare Knuckle Pickups

Bare Knuckle Pickups is a privately owned business based in the South West of England, UK. We specialise in hand-wound electric guitar pickups; traditional skills and uncompromising values form the basis of a hard-working and forward-thinking company. Our values mean we are always ready to come out fighting and stand up for what we believe.

Every pickup we make at Bare Knuckle is wound and made entirely by hand, in-house, by a dedicated team of pickup winders. The team is headed by Bare Knuckle Pickups founder and MD Tim Mills, who has been a professional guitarist for over twenty-five years.

The idea for Bare Knuckle came from Tim's time as a session guitarist, when he needed to recreate a wide range of tones that would cover a variety of different playing styles. After many years on the road playing for British blues rock artist, Elkie Brooks, Tim decided to utilise his experience as a guitarist and started making his own pickups. Tim soon found the great tone, descriptive names and unique designs, that remain the benchmark of Bare Knuckle, put his hand-wound pickups in high demand.

The team at Bare Knuckle is fanatical about music, and all of us are dedicated guitar players. We don't allow sets of hypothetical rules to determine how our pickups sound; we use our hands and our ears. All of our pickups are designed, voiced and tested in rehearsal, in the studio, or on stage; anywhere but on paper and always in the hands of a guitar player. Time and price aren't the deciding factors in a Bare Knuckle pickup construction; outstanding tone and reliability is.

Here at Bare Knuckle we are committed to producing the best sounding pickups possible, and we pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service. We want you to get on with playing your guitar, knowing that we have provided you with the ultimate pickup for the job. After all, that's why we're here in the first place, and that's why we warranty our pickups not just for a few years, but for life.
