    Please do so Misha. Even if they really limited the options I could probably still get what I want. A HT7 with a Trans Emerald Green quilt top with a ebony board and my choice of pickups.

    I am not the least bit familiar with Elysian stuff. Have to do some more research to see if that would be something id be into. I'll keep the lithiums in mind :D

    What do you like about the blackhawks? They sound like they're lacking some of the clarity the juggernauts have in exchange for some more thickness to me.

    Since you own both, how would you describe the differences between nailbombs and juggs? Nailbombs are actually a set I was considering for a while, curious to see what you like about them.

    Honestly dude just do a Ragnarok set, I think you will be blown away with how good that will sound in that guitar!

    Dark, dull and they don’t feel great.
    I think the fact that you can get drastically different tones is cool, but personally just not a fan of them at all.

    I seem to remember some Jackson artist having a sick flame maple HT7 but the bookmatch top was at an opposing 45* angle and a lighter finish. It might have been a dinky... anybody know the guitar I'm referencing?

    Yep that is definitely it, and not the HT7 shape.

    Interesting! An opinion against the fluences. I haven't heard anyone say them to be dull.

    I'll probably buy my first set soon, hopefully the feel beats EMG 81/85, and going for that extra clarity too. I've got Juggs, which I do quite like for recording, but I found myself really liking EMGs again, too.

    I think the Fluences sound a bit “flat.” Modern mode just adds sizzle and cut, but not really liveliness. They sound fine and definitely get the job done, and I love how quiet they are. Clarity seems fine, but EMGs seem to have razor sharp clarity to me.

    I tend to prefer Duncan passives, and some BKPs I’ve tried are OK.

    They just have a slightly different emphasis on the mids that i think is a lovely contrast to the Juggernauts. They sound a little more "old-school" to my ears, but they still have the BKP clarity and punch that you don't get from, say, a set of Duncans.

    Really, that would be extremely appreciated! Looking to make a Jackson custom if this goes through!

    I mean, it's not like he's endorsed and has a signature set with BKP...

    Sure I’m biased, and I have loved BKP since I bought my first set, but I can still enjoy other things than what I endorse.

    Not all of my guitars have BKPs in them, but none of them have Fluences haha.
    Just genuinely don’t dig the Fluences. They sound and feel dull to me.

    That shade of orange with the roasted fretboard is obnoxiously pleasing.

    I'm also seeing the 'blue sky burst' HT7 pro start popping up for pre-order; could be cool with the roasted neck.

    Awesome color. Ebony fretboard would be way better. Idk whatever jatoba or laurel or plain bright dry rosewood they are using really is an awful shade of brown. Even a plain maple fretboard would go well with that color. Definitely not a fan of the new light brown fretboards.
