So I obviously dig the N4, however I've always hated the L500 in the bridge; I hated it back in '96 with my first N4, and I hate it now!
So while I'm definitely keeping the '59 in the neck, I need a new pickup for the bridge.
This is the alder bodied model. Musical style? Figure on hard rock and metal, but not crushing death metal at all. I'd say hard rock is closer to what I'd be shooting for. Something not too high output that balances well with the '59.
Thoughts? I'm guessing the SD JB is going to be one of the answers (and one I'm considering) but I'd like to hear what other combos might be good too.
I'm cool with Dimarzio, SD, or other recommendations too, btw. I'm not necessarily tied to any brand (I've got the SD in the N4, but Dimarzios in other guitars).
Alder body? I'd say Duncan Custom 5. The JB may be too bright.
