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.
