Ibanez PGM301 + Bareknuckle Pickups pictures

After getting my guitar signed by Paul Gilbert i decided I'd get a professional lacquer applied

I also had Bare Knuckle Pickups installed

Check my Sig for the pickups, i would do sound clips but my camera mic just doesn't do it justice, anyways here are the pics

I don't really like the color of the pickups, but that's just me.

Weird actually, the cleans from the Mule and the mothers milk are outstanding. As are the SRV/Hendrix tones

I really haven't decided on the Miracle man yet....

My VC50 sounds poor now at low volumes but the GH100L sounds even better, slightly confusing.

I'm going to wait until the parents are out so i can crank the VC50 and see how it sounds now. It's strange the way EMG's sounded good at low volume through the VC50 but the Bareknuckles dont.

Hmm that is odd, I love my Miracle Man. I prefer it to the EMGs in my Jackson actually. Might be the amp, sounds sick with my 5150 IMO.

Cool, I remember the old thread a couple of months back where you having the dilemma whether to actually switch the pups or not due to the fact gilbert had signed it.

I previously had EMG's and the people on the Laney forum were saying that the VC50 sucked at low volumes but i argued it didn't. Now i have BKP's it does but my GH100L sounds better than ever...

I know how good BK are - but i chose how they looked to match the guitar......errm...did you?

The covers really don't work - those particular ones dont work on many guitars at all

You should have had Zebras - or did you just get them off ebay?

Sorry.

Bare Knuckle pickups are awesome but I'd have to agree that the covers really don't work on that guitar.

Should have got all black covers with black pole pieces.

Think I've come to the conclusion that I'm disappointed with the Bareknuckles, In particular the Miracle man, so much so that I'm considering having the Dimarzio's reinstalled.

I asked for a racer X tone and its way too messy imo

It probably has more gain than necessary, i loved the Paf pro's as they gave me tone and distortion at the same time, the miracle man just seems to be an EMG on steroids with little character

After hearing all the rave reviews about BKP (I Agree with the Mule and Mothers Milk)
I decided to jump onboard but the MM has really let me down

I'm probably going to have my Paf Pro's put back in and sell the BKP's

They sell for a nice price so that's no loss to me, I'll put the cash towards my fireman i guess

It sure should sound and play sexy. Why did you have to ruin the nice white/black color scheme though? Zebra pickups would have been the sex.

Awesome guitar, awesome guitarist

That was quick! haha

Shame - i'd take em....if....

For that Gilbert tone, i must say that the whole BK range is too thick and fat - which would come across as muddy achieving that tone......
Surely the PG pups or Vai or Petrucci would be aiming at the mark....or at least closer?

How loud are you playing? The Laneys sound very fizzy and messy at low volumes, they clear up a lot once you get the volume up a bit. Well, a lot. I'd have thought you'd like the BKs.

Yea well i have the Paf pro's and loved them, just assumed these would be EVEN better, unfortunately that's not the case, ah well i paid 270 to have the guitar lacquered and 0 to have the pickups installed, I'll pay 40 to have the Dimarzios installed and can sell the Bareknuckles for a lot on ebay in which i can put the cash towards my Ibanez Fireman
