McNelly Chaplain Humbucker 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.

McNelly pickups are listed individually, so simply add the neck and/or bridge pickup in the cover option you wish, to the cart. The full range of cover options are visible via the drop down menu, enjoy!
These great pickups are currently hand made to order in Canada. McNelly are still working hard through the Covid-19 situation, but Tim is working on his own and is stating pickup orders have an estimated lead time of around 8-10 weeks. Please bare this in mind when placing your order, and both myself and McNelly Pickups really appreciate your support and patience.
