    Kickass! Now I have another excuse to drive to your shop!
    Any chance you could email me the pricelist for the pickups as well? I'm interested in the holy diver for my sixstring, maybe a calibrated set lol

    Nick would you kindly PM a quote for a ceramic war pig 7, as well as the other models, six strings included. I'm using alnico wp set in my carvin and I'd like to check out the ceramic versions ,6&7 string. Is there any possibility for a p90(or similar) sized version of these pups, but with full double coil tone and design. I have a one of a kind custom,made by the bass maker Ken Smith which has two Rio Grande baby buckers right now and I'm not really satisfied with the tone I'm getting from them.thanks

    Nick I'd also like to know about a single coil for the middle position of my carvin dc747.

    Cool :) Now that you mention it I was going to place order #3 later this week, so if you have something in mind let me know.

    I'm about to head out to ship the pickups in a few minutes, when I get home I'll give all you guys tracking #s. :yesway:

    I'm excited for all you guys to get the pickups!

    Dude I snuck a peak at your pickup Steve (the boxes don't come sealed, if they were I would never have opened it), the 8-string Warpig looks SO FUCKING BRUTAL. I've never seen anything like it. It makes me wish I had an 8-string just so I could install some of those. :mf666:

    Is there any point ordering these, when I'm in Europe? Meaning, if you are shipping them from the US, the postage and tax would kill the ss discount :(

    bottom line: i wants them. where can haz? :p

    Well... I can't say for sure, but it may still not be a bad deal since I don't have to pay VAT and the Euro/Dollar exchange rate would be in your favour. If you tell me what you want, I could do some math and see if it would make any sense for you.

    If not, there are dealers over there in Europe I'm sure, you just may end up having to pay more for them. Or maybe not, I'm not positive. :)

    Im kind of torn between the Nailbomb and the Warpig for a 6-stringer. Bridge (or even Bridge + Neck)

    Thanks

    I knew about the boxes, no problem. I'm looking forward to seeing these Warpigs... though they'll be covered in the guitar they're going in :lol:

    The Coldsweats are being held in reserve in case the AL5/AL8 PAF7 set I have going in the KxK single cut don't work out (or I may say the hell with it and just have Rob put in the Coldsweat set to begin with, as I think the guitar is either in or pre paint).

    What guitar is it going on?

    The Warpig is just massive sounding. Big low end (a characteristic of the row of hex screws it has on the bass side), cool mid-range grind, lots of bite, etc. The Nailbomb sounds huge too, but it's more focused and tight. Both pickups would work great for any style, but think of the Warpig being ideal for doom, grind, heavy rock, etc and the Nailbomb being ideal for more technical riffage. The Nailbomb is pretty organic sounding too though, it's not like the Painkiller or anything. :)

    That's not to say that the alnico Warpig isn't awesome for technical riffing too, but I'm just making generalizations that may help your decision. I've gotten amazing extreme metal tones out of pickups that were designed for the total opposite. Of course, a lot of people go for the ceramic Warpig to get the best of both worlds, tighter bass and sharper attack.

    Despite my generalizations, it really depends on the amp/guitar you're going to be using, but I think the chances are extremely high that you'd be happy with either. :yesway:

    That's a shame. They look so badass. :metal:
