Anyone have experience with Boogieman Electronics/Pickups? Thinking about changing up some stuff in my starfire and figure this might be a good/affordable route for it.

I’d look around for the real thing. If you are patient, you can often find great deals on used Alembic pickups and electronics.

Bill, tgo

I think he makes good stuff. The prices go up and down, so if you time it right, or make an offer, you can get some stuff for a decent price. I got a spare Series electronics board from him and it worked perfectly and seems very well made. He uses very high quality parts. I have no idea about his pickups, though.

Of course, there are the moral issues that go along with buying something that is pretty much a blatant ripoff, although it could be argued that it's really a tribute. I'd feel more comfortable if he was paying a royalty to Alembic.
