These covers can also be mounted on bezels.

Ditto.
They look weird in the new Les Pauls too.

To me the worst part about the LP pickups is the back of that guitar, with the 4 bolts going through the back. :shock:

There were a couple cool Bolt+ builds with the S22 pickups that I always thought looked cool, too.

The neck pickup on this one:

Yeah, see the screw cutouts on the side of all of those, it just looks blecchy to me. I just can't get w the look. I think the bezels are there for a reason..

..or you could do something like the APH6 and build a mount into the pup:

But showing the screw cutouts on the side, it's not my thing.

What are your thoughts on the typical "active soapbars" like Carvin A60/70/80?

I think they look better than the standard mounted, bezel-less, humbucker w the exposed ditch for the side tabs.

We each have our own preferences; for me, I'd take that classic bolt over the Vanquish any day! 8)

Those Vanquish lend themselves to sparkle finish.
I have a feeling the Zeus is going to be popular, still wish there was a headstock version

I think that's Jeff's personal Zeus. I don't care for, personally, this use of contrasting pickups and inlays.
