This set of pickups is everything the title tells you it is: fat, slap-tastic fury from the P Blade, and an aggressive yet tamable tone from the Big J Blade. In the case of the Big J Blade, players may choose either a “warm and wooly” or “clean and clear” wind. In terms of what our builders can control upon the conception of their BJB, it is this choice in wind which serves as the player’s first and foremost front in customizing their BJB tone. The P Blade, however, is not quite so malleable. Its coalitions of magnetism and hardware belting through low and mid frequencies breeds the facilitation of doom for the sound spectrum, so we at Nordstrand suggest that if you’re looking for a raw, untamed, and aggressive sound accompanied by a disinhibiting yet friendly mediator, then the NPJ Blade set is right for you.
