I gotta put in a good word for RockMonkey pups, I put some new single coils in my MIM strat, and it sounds a thousand times better now. Never had any experience with bareknuckles however, so I can't really compare.

I have his Warm Gorilla Fist in the bridge and the Smooth Groove Custom Extra Warm in the middle and i'm going to get a '62 for the neck, and they sound fantastic. Really really great sounding pickups at a far better value than BKP.

Well, yeah, I highly recommend you go on their site/forum and just talk to the people there--ask for suggestions, etc. Really nice guys there, and Tom's also very friendly--I think you'll like him.

He only wants his customers to be happy, so he'll give you the best pickup for what you're looking for.

^ I'd be surprised if Tom was friendlier than Chris at Rockmonkey, he's got the most exceptionally best service ever.

He'll even take your pickup back and rewind it for you if it's not to taste. I can really vouch for the guy.

I really don't know... bareknuckles are really nice pickups... corduroy's are meant to be really great too, but i haven't tried them yet. I doubt you'd go too far wrong with either to be honest.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
