My Custom is stock with Tim Shaws, Standard has Duncan '59s, Traditional has a set of mid-90's '57 Classics, and the LP Special has Fralin P90s. I like to have a bit of variety.

I've gone back to using a Dimarzio Tone Zone and AN combo on my 6 string custom

I usually don't like the Nazguls, but these and the Sentient have been pretty good with my 7 string custom. Previously had a set of BKP Painkillers

For other single cutaway guitars I have:
-ESP USA Custom Eclipse has BKP Holydivers
-ESP Eclipse II has BKP Warpig/Aftermath
-PRS Singlecut trem has BKP Miracle Man/Coldsweat

R9 - Tom Holmes Company
R7 - The infamous WB's, I believe they are model VTHP '67-07's, which where his vintage hot pafs with PE wire from '67
335- Wolftone Legends

On the bench another set of THC and Wizz that came out of the R9


Wow WB those were the most notorious pickup winder back in like 2008 or 2009. Alot of ppl paid the money and never got their pickups. So I'm surprised you did. Haven't heard that name in forever
