  • NPD Bareknuckle content within!

    so i got a bareknuckle piledriver for my tele from my brother and his wife for christmas and had a chance to install it tonight



    before:





    after:









    jk those are the same picture but the pickup looks exactly like the stock one anyways



    so far it sounds AWESOME

    really really impressed with the humbucker type character this thing puts out while still maintaining clarity and really convincing tele clean sounds(with the volume knob down a bit)



    decided to compare it to the 498t in my melody maker and the results were spooky:

    the similarity is just uncanny

    the piledriver has a bit more top end sizzle to my ears but yeah just that quick practice amp/cellphone clip nicely illustrates the flavour of this pickup



    inb4 geeks flame for changing a PURFECT INSTRUMENT OMG U DEFILER



    sounds awesome to me / BKP lives up to the hype IMHO

        I think lots of folks try them but don't get the right pup matched to the right guitar. When you do get the right pup matched up to the right guitar they're worth every penny and more.



        Stellar pickups.

                        Stellar pickups.




                        I would have said that's true of any pickup, isn't it? I've had good results with recommendations from BK, Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio. Near enough each time they were spot on.



                        I've had a couple of BKs now. The ones that everyone told me to get, the Warpigs, I absolutely hated. I couldn't find any one of my guitars that they didn't turn into a big muddy swampfest. The Nailbombs though were just grand! I have a set in my V and I think my LP will be getting the same treatment. There's just so much meat to the higher strings it's rather pleasureable.



                        But, I still maintain that EMGs are my go-to pickup!
