Just updated my bolt kit with my dream pickup setup. HSH Suhr Aldrich Humbuckers plus a Fat 50s in the middle. Nothing against Carvin pickups but the Aldrich are just my personal favs.

HSH, 500k CTS Vol, 2x 500k Bournes push pull tone pots. Pull tone 1 for splitting both humbuckers, pull tone 2 to add neck pickup in any position. This is closest thing I have gotten to full on humbucker tones while being able to get those classic quack in between tones. This is now truly a do it all axe for me that I could take to any gig and cover pretty much any style of music. Jazz/pop/country/classic rock/hard rock and metal. Of course the playability of this guitar is spectacular.

Bolts are great guitars and a great value. Plus it's fun to be able to work on your guitar to make it your own. Can't wait for the next gig with her.

That's a cool pair. What drew you to them, and how did you come to own two?

I have some Aldrich pickups on order for my Epiphone Les Paul. I'm, pretty excited to try them.

Purely as a matter of style, I think the reverse inline headstock looks great on the Bolts. I also went with the locking tuners.

I have the 14" radius with stainless jumbo frets and love it. The ivory Tusq nut just looked better to me. On one of mine I have the C22B in the bridge, the S60A in the middle, and the AP11 in the neck. With this combo I can cover a ton of different styles.

I know everything I said is a matter of preference, but I hope this helps.

HT (PS - note the custom pickguard I made to get the controls as far out of the way as humanly possible)

Great looking Bolt. You did a nice job with the pickguard. I thought it was factory installed.

Here's my Bolt. Well, tele-bolt so I guess it counts.

Sunset burst on 1-pc ash body. AP-11's and C22B. I love this thing more every time I play it.

I present the Gilmour-Carvin-Caster!

That one went through a few iterations and some changes of plans.

Bolt with quilt maple top, white limba neck (smoothest neck ever!), and Gilmour signature DG-20 pickguard (SAs with active electronics and mid-boost). Pretty much the only single coil setup I still love besides the Carvin ones.

Beautiful bolt, mbardu! If they are actives then I'm curious where the battery access is.
