I am so impressed with them. I have a feeling there are many more in the future.
+1 on this. I've got a set of Abraxas in a Bernie, and a Cold Sweat/Holy Diver combo in a CE that waiting to be completed. Nice job!
How do you like the Abraxas? I've been thinking about looking into that set.
I really like them. Not that the original pick ups were bad, I was just looking for something different. I think they've got a nice grunt to them. Not too bassy. Good for classic rock/early metal sounds (Rush, Zep, Priest, AC/DC et al.), and bluesy stuff. I'd buy them again.
Very nice! Good to hear
Got my 57/08 ordered and waiting.
I'll be installing them in a SC trem, I hope they sound holy with my super lead!
Get the guitar enjoy it for a t least 3 months then decide what you want to change if anything. Everyone's ears do not hear the same sounds and the same pickup in two guitars of the same specification could sound different. Don't rush to alter the guitar or spend money.
Well it's my $ and my guitar. I did not bond with the pickups and for a small price in comparison to the entire guitar I have now my favorite guitar I've ever played. To me it was worth the $300 and 3 weeks of waiting to finally get this experience with my guitar.
It now plays and sounds better than ANY Les Paul that I have ever played. I am beyond thrilled with my decision.
This is all that matters. Glad you found your sound!
I feel your pain. I put a Rebel Yell in the bridge of my Stripped 58, and it was all it needed. The 57/08 neck pickup is fine! I can cover all the parts in Fade To Black just as easily as Rooster!
I have the Abraxas set in my Bernie and they are fantastic.Classic PAF with a bit more oomph. I have Rebel Yells in a Gibson Firebird Studio and they are also superb.
I love these Bare Knuckles so much, I'm really thinking about pulling my covered 59/09 out of my CU24 and putting a Rebel Yell set in there.
I agree 100%
And you haven't even hit their P90s, yet.
Oh those are definitely on the radar. Even looking at their HB sized ones for stuff down the line. If I ever got a Soapy I'd swap the pickups to BKPs in a heartbeat.
I'm probably going straight to the HB sized ones for at least one of my 7s.
