Ok, my shiny new gold Tokai explorer is going to have to get new pups at some point (after I've saved a bit of money).
Now I'd already mentally agreed in my head that SD's were the way to go, I like them. The final choice was not made but PG's, custom 5's were on the short list.
But today I was reminded of Bare knuckle pups. Made in England, hand wound and with groovy names.
Now I'm lucky as I can't afford to do anything at the moment, but when I can do I go the extra mile for the groovy bare knuckles (I have no idea which ones) or stick with the decidedly cheaper (even in the uk) SD's.
Tis a Dilema.
Thing is I'm sure that the brit pups will be more distinctive than the stock SD's, and custom shop will just ake life far to complicated getting them shipped over here.
But it's the great names that has also caught my mind.
My other guitar is my little test bed for me to be anal at, but a gold explorer.... a pair of Riff Raff's or Black Dogs just seem to fit the bill.
