I'm in the middle of researching a brand of pickups from England called Bare Knuckles.

I have had two sets of these and loved them both. I had a pair of Rebel Yells in a Studio and they were great. Very responsive to tone adjustments. I currently have a pair of Black Dogs in my Goldtop. They have been in there since '15. They just sound great in that guitar. I am lucky enough to have a dealer fairly close that was also a Gibson dealer. He had every set on his wall in an LP. Made it really easy to try them out.

I have BK The Mule set on my H150 Gold Top, you can hear them here, great tone

if you're in US though I'd check some more US builders for less import costs

I have a set of zebra Wolfetone Marshallheads with A2 magnets that I really don't need. I also have a set of 89 first year issues of Duncan Pearly Gates wound by MJ that I don't need. Let me know if you're interested in either set.

No real need to. 59's with A2 sound great. And I've been known to accidentally drill through bodies of cheap guitars. I don't want to take that risk.

I finished the mods on this. I kept the Duncan '59 set, but I replaced the magnets with A2 and added nickel covers. I had some CTS push/pull pots, and the pickups had 4 leads so I rewired it with PIO caps and coil splits. I had a Gotoh nickel bridge, so I used it. I installed an aluminum tailpiece with locking posts. Gotoh locking tuners.

I like the covers on the pickups!

The Doug and Pat Show Pickup Shootout #2 has a set of BK Stormy Mondays reviewed at around 15'30"...
