sooo.. been @ the london guitar show over the weekend, met with Ben (TO) and a couple of cool peeps off the bareknuckle forums.
snapped a couple of pics of the feline guitars. pics dont do them justice, they look AMAZING in person!!
LP clone (obviously) set-through heel, stellar neck. fitted with a set of BKP Mules w/ AL3 magnets. very nice full, saturated tone.
semihollow telegib. cant remember what the pups are, but looks classy as hell!
tele with a strat neck & pup config. plays like a dream. hard ash body. pups i think were irish tours (dont hold me on it)
gas building up yet?
this one was the show stopper. perfect axe for metal.
solid flamed maple body (best grain i have EVER seen) nice chunky neck, rosewood FB (would prefer a maple one!) reverse BC Rich headstock, BKP Miracle man (bridge) and Trilogy (neck)
on this axe, the harmonics fly out like bats on speed(tm Zerberus)!! its INSANELY focused with a lower midgange grunt you could cut down a whole forest! played it through a GH50L full stack, jcm800ZW half stack and jcm800 1/4stack. insane sound, totaly balls to the wall metal. the trilogy in the neck has some of the most amazing lead tones i ever heard. i dont think i can play a humbucker in the neck again .. unless its a riff raff. that is just jaw dropping. 1000 times better in person (ben can wouch for it)
spalted maple dean V and explorer.. or whatever the name is.. you all probably saw it a million times by now
part of the bareknuckle stand. the left two are from a guy from denmark (http://www.libriumguitars.dk/) insane axes. you can and WILL hurt yourself on one if you arent careful. and he's a realy cool guy.
this one took the icing off the cake though. you cant get cooler than this (well, you CAN, but those plans are between donovan and me :fing25: )
it's a V ukulele!!!!!!!!!!!
ben rockin out on matamp amps w/ a nailbomb/??/riff raff equiped ibanez.
now, a couple of words about those amps. they will give any marshall, diezel, peavey, what-bloody-ever not only a run for their money, but blow it out of the water. the GT1 and LX ones particlulary. the gt1 being a slightly lower gain amp, aimed at cranked plexi/van halen-esque/NWOBHM tones, with quite some reserves. the LX is balls out heavy fukkin metal right down to the last component! the guys from matamp are totaly cool people too. esp one of the designers, way cool guy.
