McNelly Chaplain Humbucker Neck pickup
Chaplain Tasting Notes
McNelly have never let tradition dictate design and The Chaplain is a testament to that approach. By taking some inspiration from the Charlie Christians, Tim has made something that's not only bold, but extremely expressive with none of the honk. The tight and punchy low end is combined with exceptional clarity that is well beyond any traditional humbucker. But don't mistake this for a jazz-only affair. When you push harder, you'll be rewarded with dynamic response and distortion that doesn't get in the way of chords.
Perhaps the pickup that ‘could have been’ if Gibson had based the PAF on a Charlie Christian instead of the P90.
If you're on the fence about humbuckers, don't lose hope. The Chaplain will make you a believer.
