Hello,
I'd like to have some details to try to make it
Can you Confirm :
1) Bridge 500k --> cap 47nf
2) inner coils series 500k --> cap 47 nf
3) Neck Bridge Parallel 250k --> Neck AND Bridge in Parallel should be 500K cap 47nf
4) Inner coils parallel 250k --> cap 22nf
5) Neck 500k --> cap 47nf

Nota for positions 2 and 4, one of the two humbuckers have to be reversed (turn 180). If not these positions will be not hum cancelling.

Regards
Mentor

Oh you will will have to connect a ground wire from the bridge to the pot where the other grounds are located.  On a Strat this will generally be from the claw.  There might also be a ground wire that someone has added for the cavity shielding (if present).

t's a pre-wired pickguard, so you would just have to solder the two wires to the output jack

Hi all, has anyone bought one of these from BKP? what is the installation process - does it require much soldering etc?

Good to be back on here it's been a long time!

that's a great comparison!
pretty much my own impressions when I played the true grit compared to the many holy divers I had in similar guitars (les pauls)
the true grit is similar to the diver, but more raw sounding and a bit less mid centric

Thanks!  My True Grits are uncovered and Holydivers have raw nickel covers (I just love that look), and do wonder how much that contributes to some of the differences.  I read a thread on TGP a while ago where John Suhr says "...but nothing with a cover will sound as good split as it does without a cover," and I definitely prefer the split sound of my uncovered True Grits in that guitar.

I've never played a Setius, but I love my Regius and you might check my thread looking for a replacement from the Jazz/JB that came in my Regius.  The True Grit humbuckers were really nice, in fact I might put them back in (currently have Holydivers). 

The True Grits are maybe slightly lower output (but not by much) and I think have slightly better cleans.  They definitely split better to my ears.  The bridge True Grit is a little more "gritty/raspy," but in a good way.  It has more top end and is less compressed.  In some way, they almost seemed more aggressive because of that.  It's a different sort of aggression.  The two pickups aren't worlds apart, but the HDs are more smooth and compressed with less top end.  The True Grit bridge also still felt somewhat PAF-like to me, whereas the Holydiver bridge doesn't so much.
