    Chunky neck, Lace Sensor BH sig pickups, kill switch on the tone pot.

    Really well built, feels and sounds great!
    This exceeded my expectations.

    Is it just the pic, or are the string-through holes not aligned with the V? Looks like they are offset to the right? Just curious, not knocking. HNGD!

    It does look off in the pics, but it must just be the angle.

    I'll try and get a better pic of those later.

    I'm liking the pickups!

    They're the first Lace Sensors that I've tried.
    With no pole pieces, I wondered if I'd be able to balance them out.
    They're the most sensitive pickups to height adjusment that I've tried.
    You can really dial them in, it seems.

    Good clarity in the bridge, without being too trebly.
    To me, they're definitely a humbucker, so no real oddball artifacts or tones.

    what kind of output? Also, is that skull logo thing a sticker or part of the finish?

    The skull is under the clearcoat, so not a sticker on the surface of the guitar.

    Here's the specs for those pickups...http://www.lacemusic.com/Brent_Hinds_Hammerclaws.php

    They show to be pretty high output, but they're not harsh in any way.
    I've tried other high output pickups and wasn't a fan, but I like these.
