    Seems like they increased the prices roughly 8%, if I'm not mistaken.

    Just shopped around the website and refreshed the choice and bam, new shop...

    Dead links, dead links everywhere :lol: Looks fairly nice though.
    Digging the addition of the Halo BKP builder to their own website, very cool options.

    Prices have definitely gone up. I bought a black dog 8 string humbucker 2 weeks ago and only payed 135 usd, it's now 150 usd.

    I liked the old site better, less confusing, cleaner and clearer.


    Liked the old prices better too.

    What's the best type of BKPs for a very chord clear player? I play big chords like Csus2/G and things like that.

    Also not a fan of the site navigation. It's really cluttered. Nice HD quality but takes way too long to load and navigate

    The pickup builder won't load for me. Is it actual custom spec'd pickups or just existing ones but with all the options for colours and covers?

    yeah, the new one is one of those typical templates with oversized pictures, where you have to scroll so much to see something. drives me crazy.
    imo less is sometimes more.

    This.

    Yeah, sadly dealers (EU) don't stock Impulses like all the Jugger-stuff.

    Imo the new site is ok.

    I'm finding the new site perfectly clear, it's nicer than the old one more modern. It all loads fine for me.

    Those prices though.... I'll definitely be heading to someone else, BKP are nice but I was already apprehensive about the prices for the old ones!

    I actually love the new website. I can finally see all of the pickup cover options. I plan on picking up a calibrated Jugg set really soon

    Same, loving the new website as I found the old one very confusing. Do you guys have any idea on how long they take to ship custom built pickups?

    Works okay for me, but not really digging the aesthetic as much.

    I've ordered a few custom sets through the axe palace. Taken roughly a month to receive them after the order was placed.

    I ordered the Holydiver Set on the 2nd this month and it had a price of 204 pounds.
    The new price is listed as 225.
    Also one of the problems I found with the new site. The order(which is still active) is not accessible by the link and my old account was lost.

    I contacted the BKP team and they said it is not a problem. It is just like both system don't share data.

    A previous order, a calibrated cold sweat set, took 3 weeks.
