Just to add to the "Yups", I've ordered internationally into the US when living there and into the UK while living here, and as long as the company from which you're buying does international shipping (which, clearly BKP does), you're golden (barring occasionally getting stung by customs for extra charges if you import something pricey).

There is a single currency, and it's VISA ;)

Perfect, perfect fella's. Thanks for all the wonderfull help, its been much appreciated!

Just a quick question, how do I let them know I want Alnico IV Mules?

And does BKP make a "Dog-ear" P90? You know, for a Casino?

Another Yup to the p90, there's a picture of a PIGged one in the gallery but of course you can get standard covers too.

I think Mules are Alnico IV stock but just to be sure, you can write something like 'Alnico IV please' in the Comments box. :)

^Alright, sounds good. Thanks for all the help fella's, I cant wait to get my hands on a set of these bad boys.
:)

As for the P90 thing, so basically I can get any of the models in a dog ear form?
What would you reccomend? For Blues, Soul, and Blues/Rock. I wouldnt be using a lot of distortion, mostly just clean sounds. As distorted as I need is around Zeppelin or ZZ Top, even that is pushing it. Too much Feedback coming from the Casino with a lot of gain.
Play a lot of Oasis stuff, too.

And I have another Paul that I wouldnt mind puting new pickups in too, and as much as the Mules sound appealing for two sets, I really would like some variety. Sticking to my musical preferance, what set would you recomend?

The questions just keep coming!  :P

Tim can re-wind a dog ear if you have one, or you could get a cheap one and have Tim work his magic on it.

I did get lovely results from a set of Alnico II 'Stormy Mondays' in my Les Paul, before moving the SMs to an S.G and fitting Alnico IV 'Mules' to the Les Paul - also (as you said) done to achieve some subtle contrast. The SM's are an even more open and detailed pickup than the slightly more mid focused 'Mule'.

Both these pickups sit right next to each other in  the 'Vintage' category, the SM's being cleaner and more 60's blues/soul orientated and the Mule bridging the blues/rock zone.

Perhaps a pair of superbly detailed SMs, but with a slightly stronger Alnico IV magnet might be the best option in another Les Paul. Alnico II SM with thier low impedance seem to work best in a lighter thinner guitar, but the clarity,sweetness and seperation is divine. I therefore think the best of both worlds (whilst still sweet) would be Alnico IV SMs,  because you are fitting them to another Les Paul. Others may guide you to one 'hotter' than my suggestion. I just feel they would fit your description of tonal desire. The trouble with BKPs is that they are ALL good !

If in doubt ask Tim. He has always 'got it right' for me !     :D

Regards,

Derek.

slightly off-topic i know but....

when they charge you for customs, do they just send you a bill randomly or what??

The way I understand it is that they keep hold of the item you've bought and send you a letter telling you that fact, and that you need to pay charges. Then, after the charges have been paid, they send the item on to you...although I've never actually done it myself, so I could be wrong...

Sometimes they hold the item until you go down to the office and hand over the fee, then you get your stuff.  Other times they knock at your door and have the item and you have to pay the fee on the spot.

I think it would be best to wait till you hear the Mules in your LP then you'll probably know what else you need for the best variety.
