First post here, unfortunately with two questions. I've used EMGs for most of my guitar playing career, but I now want something with more life and fullness to them. As such I'm about to place an order for a BKP bridge pickup. It will be for 80s, and modern metal in a mahogany body maple top guitar. Think Def Leppard, Skid Row, Ratt, as well as modern tones such as As I Lay Dying.
Right now I'm undecided between the Miracle Man (supposedly a more organic EMG sound), Alnico Nailbomb (supposedly most versatile) and the Holy Diver (best for 80s?).
Anyway, I listened to the clips and it seems they all have their redeeming qualities, and I'm not entirely sure which would best suit my guitar wood. Any insight you could offer would be much appreciated!
Second, I would combine it with a SD Jazz in the neck, gold covered. I want to get the BKP with a gold cover, engraved with the following symbol:
Would that be possible? I fear it might be too detailed.
