  1. Thanks for all the feedback guys. I ended up going with DiMarzios on this build. Liquifire neck, PAF middle and Super Distortion bridge. Why? Cost and hype of the Bare Knuckles seems to be focused towards a certain group of guitarists - and couldn't find any great information that tells me they are worth the cost. While I've been using DiMarzio for decades.
  2. Thanks for reviving this post mistermikey I've got a new build on the bench with surface mount pups called for. I am not near a Home Despot - but luckily I found some on amazon and some 1/4" machine screws for the pickup attachments. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KWL01Y/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Machine-Screws-Phillips-Stainless-Quantity/dp/B01CPSZ7PW/ref=sr_1_3?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1517770509&sr=1-3&keywords=4-40+machine+screw+x+1%2F4
  3. Hey everyone I'm building a basswood 3 pickup destroyer, and am now looking for pickups. It will be using an Ibanez J-Craft Prestige (58mm heel) AANJ neck and a german 1984 Floyd Rose Video from the Painter upon completion I have always been a DiMarzio fan, and am familiar with their Super Distortions, Evolutions, X2N's, and Gravity Storms for decades. I figure in DiMarzio speak - a Super Distortion for the bridge, an Evolution for the Middle - and a Gravity Storm for the neck position. I'v been talking to Bare Knuckle Pickups and they're recommending: An Aftermath
  4. Sorry about my ambiguity. Trying to put words to this. Nothing much from 0-7 - then too fast from 7-10. All the pots including the tone. I used 500k CTS Pro pots from stewmac, https://goo.gl/5p19oC I don't know if they are logarithmic or linear. The pots used in Jems are Ibanez, 500k. I've never heard these terms used with pots - and did some searches without any luck. I have used Bournes 500k pots in my Jem builds and they were ok, but don't know if they are lin or log. https://goo.gl/P4WDLy
  5. Would you be so kind to help me find these at McMaster-Carr? I have an account there - so would like to try this great idea on my builds. Thanks!
  6. I just finished a custom build of an Ibanez Destroyer - dual humbuckers with 500 cts pro pots, 1 tone control with a 220 orange drop cap. Pushback and shielded old school wiring. I had great fun doing a french polish on it! Sounds great, and is very quiet - but I just don't like the taper on these pots. My main players are my ibanez jems, and their taper is very smooth and even. Is there anything I can do to make them work better across their full range? Thanks!
  7. I have great results from a yoga mat, and I don't even need to cut it up. When I get done, i go into a Downward Dog, and renew my vitalenergy!
