    Any guesses to what this could be?


    It's going on/in my BW decommissioned Franky that will now be put back to work.

    They look great together! I think I might move it to my RBW homebuilt EBMM EVH copy, and then move the Frankenstein pup back into the BW. I'll play with it tonight and see what I think.

    So far, I think it's the most responsive pup I've ever used. You can go from light cleans to pure power depending on how light your touch is.

    I'll put some clips up when it gets to a point where I'm happy with the playability of the guitar. The biggest thing I can say about the pickup other than the dynamic responsiveness is the sound that it makes when you're slashing muted notes with some OD... good stuff. Any Extreme fans know the sound, it's THAT sound.

    $60, and a 4 month wait.

    I've read about those pickups, yet have never tried one. How do you feel they rate - compared to the EVH Wolfgang ones, or the AX40 models?
    You're a VH freak like me, so I'd appreciate your thoughts & input!

    I`ve never tried the 500XL but I did use the 500L a little bit last year and it`s a really nice pickup. Bright,tight and clear I would describe it. And when I use the word bright I don`t mean that ear piercing bright tone yet a tone that just cuts thru and sounds killer under moderate to heavy gain. If you`ve got a dark sounding guitar it will definitely put some sparkle into it . Luckily there was only a 2 week wait when I got it last year. Nuno was said to have used both the L and XL models
