Whitie underway :)

Postby Gonzo » Mon Nov 19, 2007 2:08 pm

As many of you know I have a blueburst replica and I just thought I`d let you know that a whitie is on the way now.

It will have a custom wound holdsworth prototype humbucker, 2 SDS-1's and the correct bridge (black charvel baseplate with chrome saddles) amongst other things :).

What Vol and Tone options have you gone for?

with all due respect, if you want a somewhat true
Holdsworth prototype humbucker, the SD is the only way to go :!: 8)

why ?
they are after all the people that made
the pickup in the first place ;)

I actually wrote an e-mail to them some
time ago regarding this subject, and the
Holdsworth prototype is pretty much
a JB with 2 rows of screws :)

Not that BKPs are bad in anyway, but
why did you go with them ?

BKP sounds cooler!
How much would a custom pickup cost from SD anyway? I don't think it would be able to compete, also, I think Bare Knuckle source most materials from the UK, and if not, make it themselves. pretty nice, considering everything else aruond here seems to be imported

Have you tried them? Mine shines quite well when the volume is turned up.

BKP is within driving distance from me and Tim has been in an Ozzy tribute band doing Jake stuff, he really knows his stuff. I feel BKP produce much higher quality stuff than SD but I guess it's personal preference :).

most go for $160.

but considering the AH proto is a JB with 2 rows
of screws you could get away cheaper :)
