FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / Bare Knuckle Pups - Very Impressed



Jan 13th, 2016 08:34 AM   Edit   Profile  

Happy New Year. Have not posted in a while and have something to post about thanks to my Daughter.

She got an ESP Eclipse (very nice older Japanese made model in Silverburst) and upgraded the pups a few months ago for a set of Bare Knuckle "Nail Bombs". She brought the guitar down with her for the Christmas holidays and I was extremely impressed with the guitar and particularly the pups. No mud whatsoever on the neck pup (with lots of EL84 natural distortion off my main amp) and creamy and articulate in all positions.

I am normally a strat CS pup man, but these humbuckers were outstanding. She got the guitar used off Reverb and the prior owner had some Gibson pups in it. I never heard the Gibsons but my Daughter said the Bare Knuckles blew them away.

This is my first experience with these pups but I am seriously considering a set for my Les Paul copy (which currently has a set of Stew Mac Parsons Streets in it)
