    I think with a name like Ragnarok, it's probably going to be a modern high/medium high output pickup. I can't recall anyone ever making PAF's and calling them Armageddon.

    I wish they would be P90s instead of humbuckers. Just for the lulz.

    Surprisingly this seems like the prog-metal pig, which I can't complain about! Vid's on Facebook but I don't know how to embed that here.

    I'm kind of amazed that those gross-looking CF covers look great in the matte black juggernaut and even the orange bobbin pickups look like an improvement to the silverburst sparkle. Nothing makes sense anymore.

    hmmm they're saying it's going to be super high output/tight and mostly meant for overdriven tones.

    But how could Misha possibly accurately evaluate the new pickups without his signature amp there to test through :lol:

    Seriously though as with all new Bareknuckle sets I'll be curious to see what they sound like when they come out.

    The amp may not have been there, but that video was filmed when I was in Cornwall last December. I have done many tours with the new pickups, recorded many a clip/song with them as well, and obviously played them through all my gear at home before we approved the final version. So don't worry, I got that covered haha!

    I didn't either. Tim did them in that orange color just to be funny and had planned on winding me a set with covers of my choice when we finalized the design, but when he installed them we were all kinda blown away by how it worked. I still to this day don't understand why they work haha.

    Clearly you're both crazy, orange and silverburst don't belong together. If it was the CF covered ones in the silverburst then it would be dope. Or maybe a galaxy black finish on the pickups because sparkly pickups + sparkly guitar= greatest thing ever.

    ^ it looks a little less good when I pause the video, but when Tim first picked it up I was stunned. On paper it should be god-awful, but I think I still like it. Digging the pickup sound too.

    Regarding the CF top -- in close-ups it actually appears to be just a patterned etching into a black metal top, which is a bit of a surprise.

    I have become fond of taking chances when it comes to color schemes and whatnot.

    If businessmen can rock crazy assed rainbow striped socks with a 2000 dollar zegna suit than at least let me have pumpkin spice pickups in a silver guitar! LMAO

    The good news is that at this point BKP has so many customization options it's kinda nuts, you can get pretty much whatever look you want!

    Total truth. And unlike Gibson, their zillion options don't come at the cost of tastefulness or quality.

    Oh crap did I just go there?
