Pickups for Schecter PT Apocalypse
« on: January 25, 2021, 02:49:34 AM »
My favourite pickups in mahogany are the alnico Black Hawk and Impulse.  I also like the Miracle Man in my SG, but SGs are odd guitars.

I have just purchased a Schecter PT Apocalypse (the 2018 Rust Grey version) with Schecter Apocalypse VI pickups

I am wondering what Bare Knuckle pickups people might recommend:

!. for a swamp ash / maple / ebony T style guitar
2. as a good replacement for the Apocalypse pickups by Schecter

Here is a video that shows the unplugged sound at 1:16

Obviously the Apocalypse pickups can do pinch harmonics according to this video ffs
BLACK HAWKS
IMPULSES
WAR PIGS
STOCKHOLM

I stole the C-Hawk from my C-1 Blackjack SLS FR-S, so we'll see how that goes.  It doesn't have a neck pickup at the moment for a couple of reasons:

1. When I tried to adjust the neck pickup down to see if a Black Hawk or Impulse would fit in the neck spot it became clear that the head on the factory height adjustment screw was chewed out, so I had to cut that screw with pliers
2. The squarer bobbins don't fit, so I am waiting to get to corners of the hole cut with a smaller radius so that those squarer bobbins will fit properly.  This will obviously be a lot easier without the stock pickup hanging there.

The Apocalypse neck pickup can be seen in the case.  The bridge Apocalypse is in the Blackjack.
