Hey guys! I'm trying to sell a Regius 6 Gothic Custom shop (mahogany wings) that's loaded with Joe Barden TwoTone pickups and would appreciate if you gave me your 2 cents on this subject. I upgraded to the Joe Barden TwoTone pickups a couple of years ago and I really like them. I had a CrunchLab & Liquifire set and while they sounded OK, I felt they were a bit generic. The Bardens give a ton of versatility as you're really getting two pickups in one (the single coil sound is the same as a single coil model Barden sells) and are articulate as hell, very well balanced with heaps of tone, but at the same time all the clarity make them sort of unforgiving to messy playing. Others swear by these pups but some people have described them as hifi, which is justifiable i guess. In short they tend to divide people. I had a buyer for the guitar that was really into the guitar itself and ready to buy, but was put off by these pickups after he tried the guitar. I might have offered the guitar with the old set, but the sad thing is that they were stolen when our rehearsal room was broken into. I realize that the Barden's are not that well known within the metal community so I'm wondering if the guitar might sell better if it had a set of BKP's? A set costs pretty much the same new. I might have a chance to move these pickups to my band's other guitarist and replace them with a set of BKP brute force's. I might even consider some of the more expensive models if I convinced it would help move this guitar.
