no problem Brandon, thanks for clarifying!
I enjoyed this one, exclusively clean tone.
Well this looks awesome:
It's a super cool finish, looks like Arctic Sparkle over their light blue base.
The headless is so cool to me, I'll definitely get one at some point in the future. But for now I'll just bask in these pics as they flood in and hopefully check out that trem on either the 7 or 8 strings.
I've noticed that the "white" bobbins on the multi-scale pickups seem to be translucent instead of an opaque white. Does anybody know why this is? Can you get opaque white (passive) pickups on the multi-scale models?
We currently offer black and white/semi-transparent bobbins on passive multiscale builds. We'd love to expand our bobbin line-up, but it's tricky given that we handle the manufacturing side and pass them along to BKP and Lundgren. Creating a bunch of new colors for us and them to stock would add some logistical challenges.
Gotcha. Thanks for the response! I did a deep dive into the Aristides Instagram page and saw a few multi-scale builds with opaque white bobbins, but those must have been custom orders (I believe they were Instrumental or something).
It's very possible. We do indeed accept Instrumentals as mail-ins.
Just looked again. Turns out it was the infamous "egg" 080S haha
Haha, that build did indeed have an Instrumental set.
so, I have a pickup question. lets say you order your Aristides with a bkp slanted set, and later down the road you decide you want to change the pickups.
can you order slanted BKPs directly from their site? do I go thru Aristides themselves? am i shit outta luck?
or alternatively, can a mortal order slanted sets from other companies? (Duncan, Dimarzio, etc),
or can Aristides themselves order slanted pickups from other companies?
sorry for so many questions lol.
Hey, dude! You can go directly through BKP or Lundgren for different slanted pickups that fit our routes. Ethan at Instrumental can also make pickups to our slants. I've heard rumors that Duncan custom shop will also do it, but I don't know that for a fact.
thank you for the information! I am planning on ordering an H7 soon and all this pickup situation had me spinning lol. I'm thinking bkp Cold Sweats, but I've never personally tried them so I wanted an out in case those are a bust lmao.
Yo Brandon -- has there been / is it possible to do single coils on the H?
Yep! BKP and Lundgren make them to our slants.
I'm miffed the green chameleon one didn't get a proper handling.
the pickups aren't part of the mold right? are custom pickup configurations possible?
I know it's not the H, but this is still one of the best showcases of that Chameleon. Such a cool finish, I'd definitely consider it for a future order again.
Ya that almost put me over the threshold. If only they could just make it look that green all the time...I feel this is the best angle possible
