The Aftermath humbucker features a symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coil design and is powered by 3 custom size ceramic magnets. The bottom-end responds quickly to pick attack and tracks fast riffing extremely accurately, mids are focused and intense for ultimate punch no matter how dense the mix or how low the tuning and highs are precise and articulate. With a more compressed dynamic, single notes have masses of sustain while the front of the note is clear-cut and defined even under extreme amounts of gain.
The Aftermath neck humbucker is Alnico V powered and voiced for fat, powerful clean tones, fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard and good balance with the bridge humbucker.
As with all Bare Knuckle humbuckers, 4 conductor hook-up not only allows access to standard series (humbucking) tone but also parallel wiring (still hum cancelling) or selection of either individual coil for total versatility.
Bridge Magnet: Ceramic
Neck Magnet: Alnico V
DC: 14.7/11.5K (bridge/neck)

This one nailed the tone I have been after and then some. Punchy bass, nice clear mids, and excellent details in highs.
Other pickups I tried:
SD - jb4
BKP - Cold Sweat, Warpig
Bill Lawrence L500XL - this one actually beat all the above until the aftermath was loaded.
If you are looking for a high quality, high gain bridge pickup, I can attest, this one is tough to beat!
