I got this a couple months ago, it came with "custom alnico" pups, they sound OK. I was going to get a set of SE 245 pups, maybe some covers too, but then I saw a set of covered 58/15 S and thought they might work. Man! The pups made a huge difference, and sound like they really belong in this guitar. The BM was supposed to emulate a '59 LP, and with these pups, it sounds a lot like a vintage LP. Moderate/low output, but a fairly beefy/authoritative sound, retaining great definition with distortion. These same pups sound quite different in each guitar, S2 594, S2 594 Thinline, SE Hollowbody, and the BM. Really excited about this guitar since I put in the pups, and it looks killer with the covered pups, like the limited model with the 53/10s.
