this will likely be the last upgrade I will perform to this guitar, and it might not even be a permanent one. It's an Alder body with Maple neckthru, and currently has an EMG 85 in the bridge, and an EMG HA in the neck. both pickups are run through an EMG SPC, with a master volume.
I want to go all-out in the bridge with something for high gain. In the neck, though, I'd like something more along the lines of a single-coil, though with enough output to compete, which is why I love the HA so much. I'm not opposed to wiring in a coil tap, or even just wiring one coil in and leaving the other out entirely. I use the guitar both for metal shows and open jazz nights, which is why that's important.
Any ideas? I've been thinking about going BKP, but I know that there are a ton of options out there and I don't want to make a decision without considering almost all of them.
Duncan Distortion and Jazz would be a good start.
