So, I bought these pups off Zepp during a time in his like where I think he needed a coke fix or something. I took this to MDV, because the switch in the RGD was completely and utterly fucking mind boggling to look at. The guy is the man! He had to take a tiny bit of wood out of the tab routes, but you cannot tell at all. He even threw in a free set-up and fret polish while he had it.
After trying this through his VHT Pitbull, I can conclude these do sound a bit better than the Painkiller I had in, which will most likely be up for sale soon. I think it could be down to the woods, and how the PK handles basswood compared to the Blackouts, but overall I prefer the tone from the Blackouts. That isn't to say I won't be trying BKP's again, but Blackouts will most likely be my failsafe option.
