I love the Rebel Yells in my Suhr Modern 7, and by and large are very happy with them. So, full disclosure, this is as much about the fact that I think the Suhr would look awesome with either Cream or Zebra pickups, as it is about the tones.
Near as I can tell, the Emerald set should have broadly similar output, but a slihgtly brighter, more open high end. Which, as a singlecoil guy back in the day, is appealing to me.
Also, this sounds glorious to me:
Anyone used them? What did you think? I'm essentially looking for a slightly ballsier, ruder PAF - think a PAF that's been hitting the tequila and trying to punch a bit above its weight, I guess.
(yeah, I know, I should just email Bareknuckle, and I probably will, but what's the point of having you guys as a community if I don't reach out to you on questions like this? )
The guitar in question - if anyone wants to photoshop in cream or zebra pickups, go nuts.
PUT THE WOLFETONE IN THIS.
