No this one have some Noname humbuckers..
Pretty decent pickups.. but in the end I'll probably will put something else in there..
But I like the coiltap on them, get's you almost tele/strat sounds.

So I manage to take this one for a spinn with the band today.

Floyd works great(if one tighten the string proparly [:I] ) and is really fun to use/abuse [}:)]

The guitar by itself is as all other BSG Idols's I got a charm to play on.
Medium thick, maybe a bit flatter radius than some others(US Customshops)..
The new neckjoint is great for better smoother action.

Looks..
Well I would have gone for the Vindicator(another prototype) look but with a bare maple neck, instead of the black painted headstock..
Or black headstock with binding on the headstock..
Now the head at least look smaller?!
This is just details and it is a proto.. so that's that.. [;)]

The pickups...
I have no idea on what's in there but I tell you they sound freakin great!!
Pushed it pretty hard with my Marshall JVM today and loved the tone.
They are staying in!

Get this one in production(BSG/Washburn), and get one when you can!!

Now THAT is sweet! I'm not too big on Floyds anymore these days, preferring a Wilkinson. Love to see/have one of these with a Wilkinson, Sperzels, Piezo, Roland GK, and Sustainer, in blueburst. Would that be too much to ask? Those are pretty much my favorite specs on ANY guitar. Congrats, Burner, she's a beaut. Nice playing, too!

Yea she's growing on me..
swaped the pickups to SD Distortion/-59, but probably will do it again to EMG's instead..
I've been on EMG's to loong hehe
