    It's such an interesting store. I used to go there a lot when I was going to University of Maryland and every now and then they would have some real gems. Got a dual recto head there for a great deal one time.

    Question for you guys -- I'm not crazy about the battle worn finish and the pole screws to string alignment is off on these BKP's on this guitar. These pickups are BKP Aftermath's according to the original build thread.

    Would you:

    • Leave the guitar as originally built for Misha and ignore the poles as I'm just a little OCD
    • Replace with Juggernauts that have no pole screws

    Leave it as is. It sounds like you plan to play this guitar, which is good, but when you’ve got a crazy high end instrument like this (handmade by Red Dave no less) there’s no way you’re going to do anything but make it worse, even if slightly. Also, would swapping the pickups fix pole alignment? I’d assume all BKP 7s have the same string spacing.

    Depends.
    Did you buy it because it was Misha's guitar? Then leave it as is.
    Did you buy it because you thought it was a sick axe? Sure, throw some new pickups in there, why not.

    @Ordacleaphobia said it perfectly. If you're a big fan of Misha's, I'd definitely keep it for reserving it the way it was meant to be built. Otherwise, it's your guitar and you do whatever you want with it.

    Thanks for the reply! I think kind of both...I remember seeing a picture of that guitar quite a long time ago wishing it would be sold as production model, so I had to buy it when I came across it. If it had been offered as a mass produced model I would've purchased it all the same. So, while it is certainly cool to think this guitar was used in some live shows and on some studio recordings, it's not like I bought it in the same mindset as someone who bought Kurt Cobain's unplugged acoustic or anything like that....

    I will give it some thought.

    My thought was if I swapped in BKPs with blank covers the poles wouldn't be visibly taunting me. :D

    You're not going to be looking at the pole placement when you play the thing, so if you like the sound of the pickups, i wouldn't bother changing them. If you do want to swap the set for juggernauts, just hold on to the originals and offer to swap them back in or just include them if you decide to sell the guitar.

    Not that my opinion matters in any way, but I would buy the shit out of a re-recorded P1 with the production values of P4! On vinyl, preferably! :p

    Do you guys know if there is any way to get one of the D'addario Bulb straps outside of buying a retail sig? Looking to get one more for the newest guitar. The other two I have came with the straps as they were brand new -- no strap on the used one.

    Well my Juggernaut Inertia cover from 12 years ago just got a copyright claim by WMG thanks to the upcoming Bulb Archives. Oh well.

    Surprised this wasn't posted yet, Spencer finally wrapped another one of his solo albums (first demos posted around 2013 I believe) and it's coming out October 2nd, Matt also wrote/played drums on it I think, and Plini is featured on the final track.
    I've always hoped this was going to come out because I loved everything that was posted way back, can't wait!
