    When you come up for air , I have a few questions:

    How is the string spacing at the nut and down the neck?
    Tell me about that bridge. Is it a PRS one-off?
    How do you like those pickups?


    Okay, that's it. Tear it up and have fun!

    I can promise you there will never be another one of these, at least from me. The amount of work it took for PTC is unrivaled and I'd never want to put Skitchy through it again! hahaha

    - The spacing is tighter than a normal 7, in all honesty. But after a few minutes of playing I am used to it. After a few hours of playing I can honestly tell you that I think it's making me a MORE accurate player since I have to be more aware and rely less on muscle memory.

    - This isn't a PRS produced bridge, it was an aftermarket bridge that Skitchy was familiar with that would work with this project.

    - LOVE them. Normally, I would take PRS over Bareknuckle anyday. I have a set of Aftermaths and they are OK, but I prefer the Tremonti set ten fold. These, however, are super impressive. The split sounds are unreal and the distortion is thick and clear without being percussive!

    Thanks, Mike! The squared-off bridge looked PRSish.
    You're going to make a lot of people crap their pants over at SS.org when you unveil this beauty there!

    I can only imagine how awesome that Blackhawk/PRS combination must sound. Might put a set in my SE 7 that is coming next week!

    Not to indiscriminately bump old threads. But I remember back when this was just an idea being floated around. Hadn't seen this thread until recently.

    Anyway, how about that in-depth review? Sound clips? More/better pics? I'm curious how its doing after a year...

    There should be another thread floating around with a bunch of photos and review but I didn't record soundclips - might have to block out some studio time for you on that becuase this thing still kicks asssssss

    Perhaps.

    But with the low B, you can play Smoke Under The Water.

    Hey 3Mikey, is that an old Bassman in that pic? And more importantly, is that your Bassman??!! If so, I need to share some awesome settings with you. If not, it must be a Showman or Bamdmaster. After a closer look, it appears to be a Bandmaster 2x12, but if I'm wrong, I gotta share some awesome tones I'm getting out of my Bassman recently.
