 :lol:

Yes;  but they were going to discontinue that prototype any way - it was crackling. They never went the 'full hog'.

I guess there will be. Look for some references on the forum, mention of strat sets, and of course theres still the BKP vintage strat trem which will all know about, but stays unadvertised. So there is at least those, and I bet Tim has more up his sleeve.

Hi !

if you haven't been there for a while have look to the player section to hear from the "aftermath" custom humbucker made for MDV i think.

Take a Painkiller, take C Bomb, and add "something" more   :D

Not sure if tim will make a regular production of this one though...

Ahhhhhh sit, now i realized my typping errorS
DAMN
i was so sleepy . Q: /
i wrote GAING ahahahah almost GANG
HIgh GANG HUMBUCKERS!
Q: P
My fault. sorry.
i was willing to have a pickup that could have the Hottness and articulation of the painkiller on the highs section .
Something different form the warpig, miracle man and nailbomb on the Middle department. in fact, something CRUSHING. A crushe Ammount and Voicing for Middles
And, Tight and deep Middle Bassy frequencies.
Also, a little bit of Bass too.

Eq Wise it would be 6, 7, 8 - Bass, middle , Treble.
outputwise speaking. the same ammount of output from a nailbom is OK for me. maybe 1k more .
Magnet? Timīs Choice.
i dont mind.
Overal Voicing? Crushing Middles, Tight and Focused Bass, and Open, Airy , Singing Highs.

is it already done?

There are several experimental sets that Tim is working on that may come to light.  However ones that people have heard about and are available through the web site (with additional comments to get the right set), are:

62 Strat Set - more SRV than the Irish Tours - AV 6.2K/5.5K/5.5K
69 Strat Set - David Gilmour meets Bare Knuckle - AV 13K.5.6K/5.6K
Black Guard Flat 50 New Wind - Nocaster sound, different neck pu - great blues sound - AV 10K/7.5K
T-Top Humbucker - just got these and have fitted them to my Zemaitis Metal Front clone, initial impression is that I really like them, they're like an agressive Stormy Monday!  AV 7.6K/7.2K
50's P-Bass - original single coil pickup

I'm not sure if all of these will see the light of day, but they are around if you want to get something new.
So many pickups, so little time

AGHH!!! :lol:

Phil, this is the most GAS inducing post I have read on any forum for the last year or two...

I've heard of at least half of these pickups in passing, but seeing them all in one post, described in that way... it's just... its... sigh...

It's not just the pickups themselves... it's the guitars I'll have to buy to put them in :lol:

Hi Andy, I did forget to mention that the neck pickup in the BG Flat 50 New Wind is also different.  After playing the T-Tops yesterday, they are great, they have a big open rock sound, think 70's.  I strung the guitar with 50,40,30,17,13,11 and they have a huge bottom end which I wasn't expecting but sounds fantastic with the JTM45/Ear Candy combination.
So many pickups, so little time
