    I was @ Misha's Sam ash unitary clinic in FL last week and the subject of these pickups came up lol. I think he was pretty careful on how much he told us regarding these. I think he was envisioning some lawyer @ bkp giving him a death stare from across the room hahah. We were all sworn to secret squirrel secrecy for the morsels of info he did divulge.

    Very interested to hear the tonal differences between the current offerings and the new hotness.

    Oh, and just a side note I feel needs to be said:
    Misha comes across as one of the nicest, humblest, most genuine notable musicians I've ever had the pleasure to be in their company. I think he really enjoys what he does and would have spent more time with the crowd if he had been able to.
    He earned my deep respect and admiration as a player and a person.

    So does anyone know what these are supposed to sound like yet or what problems they're supposed to solve?

    They will probably sound like the best pickups you ever heard with insane clarity and low end response and tightness. They will solve every problem you ever had and make you want to put them in every guitar you own.

    That is until the next set comes out.

    I think this goes without saying for every new pickup that comes out now. Maybe they actually sat down for this one though and really brainstormed some new marketing strategies and buzzwords we haven't heard yet.

    I bet it's going to be a mid scooped pickup bridge pickup with super warm highs just to differentiate itself from the juggs/aftermath :p

    I will be interested to see what they come up but is it only me that is irked but the constant hyping of products lately? Like if it sounds like crap to my ears in the end will making videos before the release make me change my mind and suddenly make it the one pickup to rule them all?

    Don't mind my ranting much, I'm in a cynical mood lately :(.

    Honestly part of me hopes it's essentially a BKP version of the dimebucker or something just to troll the shit out of people, but it'll probably end up being another mid forward dj000nt pickup.

    Thanks for the kind words pal, and thanks for keeping secrets all secret like.

    Worry not guys, details will be coming soon. I'm super stoked with this set and its very different from the Juggernaut both in design goal and execution. The only other thing I will say is that it is not replacing the Juggernaut. The rest of the info will come very soon!

    Whatever they sound like I just hope they continue to make me want to swap my Duncan Nazgul for bkp. The More I play my Nazgul/sentient the less I'm digging them...
