Steve Stevens hard at work on R&D!
« on: September 20, 2005, 07:39:49 AM »
Here's a shot Steve has sent in to show he's hard at work finalising spec on the 'Rebel Yell' Steve Stevens signature humbucker set. Like all BKP's nothing is set in stone until they've gone through rigorous field testing and where better than the Billy Idol 2005 world tour.
The pickup set in Steve's gold sparkleburst  LP Standard feature gold etched covers and in his own words, '....your pickups are the only ones that you can actually "play" the pickup. Dig in, it grinds, back off and it articulates.'

Awesome stuff 8)

Insane. Any closeup of the pups, Tim?

I wonder if Steve can provide us with some clips.

If you look closely you can see the BKP logo etched on the covers.

I'm hoping that, when he's got a break from his heavy touring schedule, Steve will do us a clip...........we'll definately do one for the Rebel Yell humbucker :D

Great news Tim & Steve!

I think the quality of player eloquently suggests the potential of these pickups.

(I feel a case of GAS coming on in preparation for their final release. I'm gonna be a very poor boy)

I can't publish anymore spec other than to say it's Alnico V based and the fact that it's quite different from anything I've done thus far.............Steve's got one more tweak he's requested before it's all set in stone.
We're hoping for  release this year if poss but it may well go into the first Q of 06 like you rightly said Ben.................Steve's offered to do an in-store too!
Whatever happens, you guys will hear about it first!

Cool stuff. Remembering the song Rebell Yell, I bet it'll be one energetic rock pickup. :twisted:
