Seems to a good ending of 2011 with all the new shiny gear with the bare knuckle piledriver bridge pickup to end 2011.

Been on the hunt for a new bridge pickup for my avri52 tele. The stock pickup wasn't bad but it sounded way to thin for my taste. Looked at the fender nocaster pickups but I figured I wanted something with a bit more power. Heard some great stories about bare knuckle pickups and I was trying to hunt down a the boss bridge pickup. Problem was that my local shops would only sell me a set and I have no credit card to order from bare knuckle directly. Checked one of the local auction sites and found a guy selling the piledriver bridge pickup and he lived really close! Feared that the piledriver would have to much output but decided to give it a shot and pick it up.

How does it sound? Fan-****ing-tastic! It has way way way more bottom end than the stock pickup and it really growls, it's almost like a P90. It has a lot of output but nothing too crazy. Play it through a high gain amp and this pickup will hold it's own. It cleans up really nice aswell even when I crank my JTM45 and I really like the clean tones I'm getting that way. With the volume pot all the way open you do loose that telly twang a bit but it's still there(esp with a bit of treble on your amp), roll back the volume and the telly characteristics does come through a bit better.

How does it look? exacly the same as any flat pole tele pickup.


If you're looking for a pickup that will turn your tele into a mean rock machine: def check out the bare knuckle piledriver!

Can't stop playing, this pickup is just so awsome! Think I might get the neck pickup aswell. The piledriver makes me want to buy a set of bare knuckle pickups for my stratocaster
