I thought I'd better see what all the fuss is about. A set of painkillers with black covers. Absolutely beautiful things. Just got to see what they sound like now!! They're going in the guitar that I'm sort of half way though. Ebony top, ash wings. Walnut neck with maple splices and ebony board. Maple inlay. Some would say that makes a difference to the tone... ANYWAY Today is a very good day. Thank you so much Bare knuckle, you are super amazing at being an awesome company to deal with. I ordered these on Tuesday!
