I've had a set of Cold Sweats in my Blackmachine B2 for about a year and a half now, and they have done me very well indeed. Recently, I've been playing around a lot with my other BKP-equipped guitars, and I started falling in love with the slightly lower output alnico pickups Tim makes. I decided to try swapping out the pickups in the B2 to see what happens.
So, after some careful consideration I ordered a Rebel Yell for the bridge, and a VHII for the neck (the latter is probably my favourite neck pickup ever!).
Onto why BKP rocks: I ordered the pickups on Tuesday, and they got here this morning Bearing in mind the pickups are handwound to order, that is absolutely ridiculous service, nothing less that what I've come to expect from Tim and the team.
Anyway, I'll be fitting them over the next couple of days, then I'll do some comparison clips of the new pickups vs. the old!
Here's a few pics I quickly snapped:
Can't wait to try these beasts out!
Those, and the burnt chrome, covers are sexy as HELL.
I'm trying to imagine what they'd look like in my PRS SE, and it's not pretty, and I feel bad about that.
