#BasilFung with #FrankieValliAndTheFourSeasons laid down some Very Very Clean riffs on a #BareKnucklePickups equipped Strat scaled #Tau6 at #NAMM2023. 
It’s nice to have an in-your-face reminder that the artist dominates the sound, and the instrument should do its best to show the details.

Yin Yang kindof pickup. Very clean and revealing. Clearly shows my sloppy attack and release, ringing of unmuted strings, general poor form, and lack of understanding of Filtertron pickups. 
Very sensitive to pic stroke location, angle, string type; with a lot of bass from a bridge pickup. 
Highlights the bennies of removable pickups. Lots to try out in life.

The feel of green grass, polished stainless frets, and raw roasted maple in the hand. The comfort of the sun’s warmth and string locks done right. Aww summertime.

Playing piezos only with the mags out is different. A little trippy.

F around and find out. Are @Chaz.Leon and @JeffYoungguitar with #KingsOfThrash, always this happy or does losing 6lbs of dead weight on a studio instrument free you up a bit? #namm2023

      • Rigid or soft mounting of pickups
    • Works with most SingleCoil and Humbucker pickups
  • Tonally connects the neck to bridge

    • Tonewood Pickup carrier connects bridge and neck as structural element in parallel with body
