Brierley Guitar Pickups


A few weeks ago I acquired a rather lovely Bacchus BFV-K Classic Series from 2012.

I needed to adjust a few things to really dial it in, and one of the first things I did was contact Mick Brierley to make some new pickups for it.

The stock pickups were ok, but I sensed there was a lot more voice in the guitar than the existing microphones could let out.

Mick made me a lovely set which I installed a couple of days ago, and I am delighted with the clarity and dynamics that are now apparent. The acoustic voice of the instrument is right there if I want it, and I can go from purr to roar with picking dynamics.

Here's the demo, let me know what you think!

This is an unpotted Vintage 50's PAF Tribute set from http://brierleyguitarpickups.com.au

Core setup:
Amp: Vox Pathfinder 10 amp > 1x12 cab w/Celestion Creamback 65M
FX: Timmy > Catalinbread Belle Epoch.

For the gainy parts a Tomsline Dumbler overdrive, NUX TapeCore echo and sometimes Danelectro Tuna Melt tremolo were added.
