    Pickups for a hollowbody?

    I have an Ibanez Af95 that i really like looks sweet, plays great, sounds nice unplugged. The pups are another matter not horrible but nothing great either. I'm looking for something with nice cleans that can handle heavy distortion. I'm considering these...

    EJ Custom neck
    EJ Custom bridge

    The description sounds interesting, eq profile looks like it won't be muddy.
    So does anybody have any experience with these or know any other pups that might fit the bill?

    If it were me, I'd probably just throw in a set of Duncan 59's.

    Admittedly though, my idea of hollowbody tone wouldn't work well for high gain. I live for the Seth Lovers in my Heritage. Now, granted, the pickup isn't the only part of the equation. They do sound pretty good, to me, under high gain but will feedback like mad.

    For my next hollow, I am thinking same guitar with different materials and either more Seth Lovers or throwing in a pair of Bare Knuckle Manhattans.

    I play more intimate sounding jazz a'la Jim Hall. I don't play like him. ...just that sort of sound.
