Saw a drawing of that posted on the BKP facebook, asking what we thought it was.

I can see the juggernaut, but I also see a lightbulb in the middle and like most suspect a link to Perithery.

I would actually think a Misha signature PU to be not unlikely. Perhaps that would be something based on the AM with a bit of BH in there or something. Dare I hope for it to be alnico?^^

Wonder if it is just another special etch or a new PU entirely? Questions, questions...

There is definitely a light bulb in there, and there is a vaguely Indian look about the design, which probably derives from the origins of the word juggernaut, summarized on wikipedia:

"Originating ca. 1850, the term is a metaphorical reference to the Hindu Ratha Yatra temple car, which apocryphally was reputed to crush devotees under its wheels."

All of this is pointing toward a Misha Mansoor signature pickup ... especially the Aftermath look of it

Lets speculate some!

I say it is based on the AM, but more asymetrcial. Also it has either Alnico 5, 8 or a combo of alnico and ceramic!
Neos are possible, but I would rather rule those out.

To quote Daemoness Guitars on Tim's Facebook:

"These new Bare Knuckle Pickup's "Juggernaut" humbuckers will be released soon, designed by Tim Mills, Adam Nolly Getgood and Misha Mansoor. I was honoured when the dueds asked me to design the logo. I based it on Achaemenid Persian griffon capital at Persepolis. If you don't like it, take it up with King Cyrus the Great. Although you will risk having your flayed skin stuffed with dung, straw and painted red if you loose the argument - as was his pleasure. From his gigantic, immovable mausoleum inscription - "O man, whoever you are and wherever you come from, for I know you will come, I am Cyrus who won the Persians their empire. Do not therefore begrudge me this earth that covers my bones"

Obviously this is a video of Misha playing the Juggernauts. Really not my cup of tea, I thought Aftermaths where already dry and djenty, but this? I'm sure all the fanboys with 7 and 8 Strings will go nuts over these. I'll stick to my trusty Holydiver and Miracle Man old school sound :P

To me it sounds like BKPs take on Duncan Distortions/Black Winters. It has that sound to it. Obviously it will have BKPs own twist, but I think it's in that ballpark!

I really can't get into that style or sound at all, but I'm sure a lot of people will want them

I'd have to say that based on that video clip, I don't like it at all. Too dry, too tight and generally without soul. I'll happily stick to my Holydiver and Crawler pickups but I daresay that plenty will love it so live and let live  :D

I think we'll just have to wait and see what it's capable of when it gets released. I've heard Misha play Djent on the ToneZone on Dimarzio's website, and you wouldn't think it was indeed the ToneZone. It could be capable of a lot more for all we know.

That clip doesn't sound like black winters to me

Obviously not the same, but in a similar ballpark to the Distortion. I believe the Black Winters is apparantly a hotter and brighter Distortion. Again I could be completely wrong about the Juggernaut. We'll just have to wait and see.

Interested in hearing more about them for sure. My favorites still are the A5 Warpig, and the Painkiller.  I have a set of the Black Winter Duncans.  I actually dig them in the Les Paul Standard.

Same for me. I really want to try the Black Hawks, still. I just don't like the design. I guess beauty is skin deep, afterall. LOL
