The Bare Knuckle Pickups Miracle Man is part of their contemporary humbucker line. It’s an extremely high output pickup meant to replicate famous active pickups such as EMGs. Like all BKPs, this humbucker comes with a plethora of options to choose from. Mine was a bridge position humbucker with a ceramic magnet and four conductor wiring.

The Miracle Man is pretty much modeled after that Zakk Wylde Ozzy Osbourne kinda tone. It has probably the tightest bass out of all of the BKPs that Tim offers. It’s crazy tight. The midrange is scooped a touch to allow for the treble to really shine through. This pickup’s treble is crisp, but it’s never too overbearing to where it gets ridiculously icepicky.

However, just because it’s a super high output pickup doesn’t mean it’s a compressed mess of notes. The Miracle Man is extremely clear and open. When you play chords under high gain, you can hear every little note. Single notes really jump out at you as well. Harmonics on this pickup are crazy as well. It really reminds me of EMGs once you start slamming those pinch harmonics. I never got to try this pickup in split or parallel modes, so I can’t comment on that.

The Miracle Man seems to be best suited for woods like mahogany or other neutral to darker woods due to the treble. If you aren’t careful, there could be a touch too much treble with this pickup. Actually, I think it sounds absolutely phenomenal with basswood bodies.

If you’re looking for a high output pickup with superb harmonics, extremely tight bass and a powerful punch, check out this pickup. Imagine a tighter Painkiller but a little less raw and without the overly powerful midrange, and you’ll come close to what this pickup has to offer.
