    Never got around to showing this off in the strandberg*... So here you go! Only really got a single good photo of it.

    Did a cover with it too! Love the twangy feel to it: https://youtu.be/nWNZHjsPg5Y

    What is your thoughts on the VHII? Considering getting one.

    All the BKP's I've tried have been from the contemporary line of pickups.

    I play a fairly broad range of stuff so it's helpful having something that isn't screechy screamy. It's definitely got a good warmth to it, but it's not overbearing (and I prefer that given this is quite a bright guitar). It blends well with the HD as well (I have them set up as two individual volume pots and a tone, so blending is fairly easy). Quite happy with it all up.

    The VHii is probably everything you would want in a neck pickup. Warm, defined, not muddy, splits beautifully.

    Hows the holy diver though? I have an alnico nailbomb and to me its just too bright with too much high mids and quite a "dry" character.
