New Pickup Day: Black Water Guitars Elder God 7

After 6 weeks of waiting, I finally got the pickup I ordered from Black Water Guitars in Texas.

The wait was worth it. This is the first Elder God he ever sold to a customer, which I thought was pretty cool.

It's a 15.91k, Alnico V humbucker, very clearly voiced for metal. My closest analogue might be a Bare Knuckle War Pig. It's fairly dark and has really grindy heavy low mids while still being articulate. I'm not a huge fan of it for lead stuff, but it's crushing for rhythm. Kind of like Behemoth's Zos Kia Cultus in a pickup, if I had to describe it like that.

Facebook pics aren't working right now, apparently. It looks like a Duncan Nazgul in Active Mount form though.

Well, after a day, I think my only criticism is I find it's not very harmonically rich. Kills for rhythm playing, not my favorite thing for leads ever. A bit too polite up top IMO.
