Currently assigned to Bagram AB.
I haven't made a decision on Pickups yet. I have a set of EMGs (81 and 85) in my Gibson LP and Gibson PAF copies in a custom built LP. Love the sound of the EMGs for almost everything I play. But with this build I am looking for some diversity in the sound. Was thinking about a SD Invader in the bridge and a SD 59 (or pearly gates) in the neck. I want something with a nice bite to it, but something I can roll the volume back on and get a nice clear, full sound.
I was thinking about the Rio Grande pickups, but I don't want a covered pickup on this guitar, wanting to get more of the basic look with the black hardware and open pups. I'll take a look at the Bare Knuckle Pickups. I got some connections in the UK if I want to go that route. What's the use of having a Mother-in-Law if I can call in the favor every now and then. Not to mention, my wife usually goes back to the UK every year and I usually try to get time off work to go as well. Nothing like a Pint down at the local.
I usually play through a 2 channel 100 watt JCM 800 super lead, but also play through a 65 watt create when I want to be a bit more portable. I just love the sound of a LP pluged straight into a Marshall.
