Will a bare knuckle F spaced Black Dog fit in my Mojo?

Love my Mojo but not that JB!  Was thinking of dropping a trembucker Pearly gates in there, but i really love the black dog by bare knuckle.  Would the 52.9mm Fit if i was to get rid of the wings and dremel the corners?

Curious what you don’t like about the JB?

It sounds pretty weak and all mids.  I raised it closer to the strings which upped the output, but my suhr with a thorn bucker just sounds way bigger, more open and less congested.  I initially was curious if the Piezo powerchip may have been changing the tone, but i direct wired it and it was no different.  It's just the JB.

Mmm that’s interesting. The JB on my Nitefly is hotter than all the pups in my other guitars except maybe the Illuminators in the Majesty. It has a very full sound.
But I do believe that tonal differences in high output pups are quite minimal anyways.  A tweak of EQ is often all that is required to even out disparities. With modelling gear and patches, that’s a very simple task.

I will be interested to hear if the BK BD sounds very different to the JB.  Perhaps do a pre/post change vid?

Popped a Suhr Thornbucker plus in the bridge.  It took all of 10 minutes and made a night and day difference.  The guitar is way more open and classic sounding minus those congested kids of the JB.

Good work.

Did you do a pre/post vid so you can share the result?
