Hey guys, I'm getting custom build in a few months and really need to decide on pickups. Haven't tried anything out yet just looked around the net. I thought I wanted the BKP Motherbucker in the bridge until I read what was said on here about it :/

 

My other choices for bridge were Rio Grande Crunchbox, BKP Nailbomb or BKP Warpig.

 

Also I'd like for the neck pickup to give a nice warm, glassy stratocaster-esque tone, what's everyone's thoughts on BKP Mississippi Queen? or Rio Grande Jazzbar?

 

^^ All previous Bellamy pickups but they seem to be what I like :happy:

 

Also gotta point out the body will be Mahogany and the neck Birdseye Maple ;)

 

Any other suggestions and demos you can direct me to would be helpful.

 

Cheers

Glassy in the neck with a Mahogany body? Go with a real single. The Suhr FL is as hot as I'd go.

 

The Rio Grande is the closest that you've listed but it would be too much for me.

some red/red lace sensor duallys or a bare knuckle nailbomb

 

yes a punch in the face to whomever guesses why i thought of those two first when i think of pickups

 

basically i need something to replace my weedy sounding single coil in my fender tele, so im gonna get it routed for a humbucker and then coil tap it, i need it to sound pretty big, have a nice sustain, yet be able to coil tap it and still get a single coil sound out of it.

 

duallys tempt me because i can redo my guitar into a tele plus and then that will be ossum

nailbombs tempt me because they sound big

 

open to suggestions?

Yesterday i realised that i only use the bridge pickup in my HSS guitar, the neck and middle pickup got absolutely no use in the last year.

 

But they are shit duncan designed stock PUs.

 

I thought about getting something really bright in mid position and maybe a single sized humbucker in neck position. (for match the bridge volume) Is there any worthwhile pickups made by the cheap guys (GFS, Iron Gear, etc.) for these positions? I don't wanna buy something overly expensive because i am still not sure about if i ever gonna use those PUs. Also i can sell these cheap ones in 1-2 days if i won't need them.

Have one in the bridge (not the Manson custom wound, the original one) and it's awesome, middy and with a lot of clarity, the chords are now very sharp with distortion.
