Expert Review

The old adage about dressing for the job you want definitely carries over to the Bare Knuckle Warpig. There are few pickups that simply look as metal as this thing does, with a design that makes it look closer to a war-ridden tank than any electronic component you might find in an electric guitar. Looks aside, the Warpig has what it takes to live up to its name. Its extremely high output handles intense amounts of gain, making it an obvious choice to endear to the needs of metal players.

The default of this pickup has an Alnico V magnet, which provides smooth high-end, natural middle-range, and deep lows. The Warpig also offers a ceramic magnet option that has a sharper cut in the highs and a faster bass sound, which really drives this already aggressive sounding pickup into full throttle. If you’re looking for intensified bass response, the Warpig is definitely the way to go, although if your instrument already favors the low-end, you may run the risk of diving too far into the deep end.Rating: 4/5
